Thank you very much for visiting my blog. On this blog you will find information about software development for Windows Phone and Windows Embedded related products.

My name is Maarten Struys. I live in The Netherlands where I work for Microsoft as Windows Embedded / Windows IoT Account Technology Strategist. I love to speak about these Microsoft related technologies at large international conferences like Tech•Ed, MEDC and DevConnections. I also like to evangelize Windows Embedded Operating Systems and Windows (Phone) Application Development. Before joining Microsoft in 2012, I created a large number of Windows Mobile How-Do-I videos for MSDN and I also created the Windows Mobile Ramp-Up learning track.

Between April 2010 and August 2012, I was a Microsoft MVP, specializing in Windows Phone Development. Prior to this, I was a Microsoft Embedded MVP and Device Application Development MVP for 8 years.
