Dani Diaz, the local Microsoft Dev Evangelist who was the hookup for the recent XBOX party at IndyHall, asked me to post a couple of events that are coming up this weekend out at their Malvern, PA HQ. I know there are some local dev types reading, so this might be something you’re into. Also, a portion of the day’s programming involves robots, and WHO doesn’t love robots. C’mon.
Really, I want to encourage you to go, if for no other reason , to meet Dani if you haven’t already. I’m pretty openly not a Microsoft user, but Dani and I have had some EXCEPTIONAL conversations about the more overlaying issues in software development and the tech industry today. He’s a smart guy coming at it from a different angle than I am, and I think it’s totally rad.
Microsoft is hosting 2 great events this Saturday at the Microsoft office in Malvern, PA. We have a full day of free Silverlight training and a full day or XNA Game Studio and Robotic Studio. XNA Game Studio is free tool that makes it super easy to create great video game for the XBOX 360 or the PC.
You can find more information on my blog http://www.smallandmighty.net. Both events are FREE.
We are giving always one XBOX and 2 Zunes as well!
