Twice every year, Microsoft employees from all over the world congregate in Seattle for TechReady, a week-long conference open to the Microsoft Technical Field Community. The conference serves as a place to get trained and inspired about the latest tools, technologies, and products coming out of Microsoft and the industry as a whole.

Throughout the 80-minute talk, Felix and I built a Twitter-clone from scratch.
Unfortunately, although the content of our talk was on the open source stack, as TechReady itself is an internal-Microsoft conference, the slides and video of the session are available only to Microsoft employees. In any case, the final product can be seen here with the code publicly available on GitHub.
