Our team was lucky enough to sign up for Microsoft’s Techfest{2008} last January 22, 2008, held at Rizal Ballroom, Shangri-la Makati. The event started with a registration followed by 6Cyclemind’s performance. Pampagising daw hehe. The morning session was basically a short discussion on the new releases. A more detailed discussion followed in the afternoon. We attended the following:
  • Microsoft Silverlight By: Tim Vergel de Dios, Academic Developer Evangelist
  • What’s New in SQL Server 2008? By: Nicholas Dristas, Principal Program Manager SQL
  • Server What’s New in Visual Studio 2008? By: Warren Yu, MVP for Visual Tools

The event concluded with a Raffle. Unfortunately, no one from our team won wahuhu.

Here are some links for the event:

After the event, syempre picture taking sa labas hehe. Pictures to follow.
Non-tech note: Ang Filipino term pala ng beans ay bitsuelas haha. Nagduda pa ako nung una kasi ang nasa menu ng hotel, guinisang bitsuelas pero nung sinerver, sweet peas naman. Pagkatapos ng maraming beses na pagtatanong, ang bitsuelas nga ay beans at ang sweet peas ay chicharo. Misleading lang yung menu.
