Windows Weekly 492: Amsterdamned

Posted on November 17, 2016 by Paul Thurrott in Podcasts, Windows Weekly with 1 Comment

Just when you thought a Windows Weekly live show couldn’t get any more epic, we show up at Wortell near Amsterdam and they pull off a live HoloLens demo. Amazing!

Running time: 1:54:09


A special thanks to Wortell for putting us up and plying us with food and beer. And to the fans who showed up for the meet-up and live show. It was an absolutely spectacular time. Thanks!!
