Germany celebrated the launch of Windows 10 with a Windows 10 Fan Celebration Party that took place on July 29 at the Microsoft Office in Berlin. The German Windows Business Group asked the DACH MVP team to support them by inviting 15 MVPs to this exclusive event. The greater technical communities and fans have been the main audience of this event as they had the chance to attend the Open House from 10 A.M. until 3 P.M. The party started with a warm welcome speech from Germany general manager Alexander Stüger, followed with a speech by public relations lead Thomas Mickeleit. As they finished, Windows business group lead Oliver Gürtler took the stage to deliver a live demo on Windows 10, explaining the new features and advantages of updating to Windows 10. At the end of his session, he thanked Windows Insiders for their support and he expressed his thanks to all MVPs and asked MVPs Peter Nowak, Lars Heinrich, and MSP Alexander Faust to join him on the stage for a quick chat. They were asked what personal advantages and benefits they have experienced from using Windows 10 for their day-to-day business as developers. Peter Nowak also attended the Open House event as an Ask the Expert volunteer to answer fans’ questions. After the press conference, they held three different breakout sessions for the press including an IoT session and a hardware session, where all hardware partners attended to answer questions on their hardware running on Windows 10. At 6 P.M., with the attendance of 500 exclusive attendees, the evening event started with a vibrant atmosphere providing a ground for technology, networking, and fun.
