I had the privilege to meet a very inspiring team at Microsoft recently. I was in need of Windows based hardware for my development of Particle Playground, so I reached out to one of my pals over Twitter @DaveVoyles to ask if they had a phone laying around. I got introduced to the Microsoft initiative BizSpark (which if you’re a startup is amazingly beneficial) and his colleagues over in Stockholm.
They were quick to respond, a meeting at the Microsoft office in Stockholm was arranged a couple of days later. Over lunch we had a chat about collaborative opportunities which could take place in a near future. Not only did they open all doors, to my big surprise they had a Surface Pro and a Nokia Lumia phone waiting to be handed over. Huge thanks to the kind people over at Microsoft, very cool move!
