Microsoft Student Technology Day - 1 October


Are you a Computer Science, Engineering, Design or a student with a passion for technology? Then we have the event of the new academic year for you!

On Wednesday 1 October 2008, join Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer and other industry leaders as they discuss the next generation of computer science innovation with students and lecturers from across the UK.

During the day we'll cover a range of subjects, from new computing concepts like Microsoft Surface, to our speakers' experiences of designing, developing and delivering Internet-scale products, and turning ideas into commercial successes.

Highlights for me:

  • Steve Ballmer keynote. He is *the* man and will inspire you to think BIG with software and what can be achieved as we move into the S+S era of computing
  • Andy McLoughlin from A fantastic start-up and top chap, talking about the lessons from starting a (successful) software company
  • Our very own Paolo talking about Microsoft Surface development
  • Product group and Microsoft Research presentations on the CS behind Live Search and games like Halo 3/Xbox Live.

Spaces are extremely limited, if you are a student or academic, please register immediately - Student Technology Day
