Yesterday we hosted SLIDE7 at our offices in Reading, a technical event for students offering information about our web technologies.

Thanks to everyone who came, it was a great day, I hope you all enjoyed it and have a chance to play with some of the cool stuff we demo'd. It was a shame we couldn't do the BBQ outside but even Microsoft can't control the weather ;)

Particular thanks to Rob Miles and David Grey from Hull University who spoke on web services and their application on mobile devices and ASP.NET respectively. Thanks also to all the Microsoftee speakers who gave up their time to deliver some great presentations.

I am in the process of collating all the content/slide decks from the speakers, they should all be available here within the next couple of hours.

Once again thanks everyone for coming, hopefully I'll see you again next academic year (if not before).
