DERWID supports Peter Rohr on the IBHR 2019

After the successes of the 2018 racing season, DERWID supports Peter Rohr – the current World fastest Handicap-Racer – in achieving his dream also for the next season. We will be on track together again for the International Bridgestone Handy Race 2019.

Peter Rohr: World fastest Handicap Racer 2018

In 2018 Peter Rohr fulfilled his dream. After the motorcycle accident of 2015, where he lost the use of his left arm, he worked hard to get back on the motorcycle and at the end of a successful racing season, he won the title as World fastest Handicap Racer.
Crowning his achievements and commitment, early this year he was voted Man of the Year of the Villach Region for the Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung.

We are proud and very happy to be on track together also this year. We share with him the belief that adversities are a chance and from every situation there’s a way out.

What to expect from this 2019 season?
For sure passion and great emotions. Peter has continued his trainings, also off the track, to prepare for the races and reach his goal for 2019: defending the World title.

We look forward to seeing you on the track, Peter!

DERWID sponsors Visual Studio Saturday

This year DERWID sponsors Visual Studio Saturday.

In the last years we learned to master the .NET and Visual Studio ecosystem: it became fundamental to develop our solutions. We appreciate especially the opportunities given from the integration between different legacy systems, the porting of the developed solutions, the possibility to create cross-platform enterprise applications.

Discussion and dialog are fundamental to us in order to develop new ideas and find new perspectives: what better opportunity than Visual Studio Saturday?

We believe in these technologies and are pleased to support the organization of events such as Visual Studio Saturday. And why not, hopefully this will be also the occasion to put the seed for new collaborations.

Do you want to know everything about the .NET and Visual Studio ecosystem? Are you already an expert?
