Aberdeen attracts Microsoft gurus

Thursday the 11th of November is a rare opportunity to hear talks from two of Microsoft's most respected technical gurus. The talks are aimed at all software developers interested in developing software for both the web and Windows Phone 7 - Microsoft's recently launched challenger to the iPhone.

Mike Taulty will be discussing all things Silverlight whilst Mike Ormond will be focusing on the features and development platform for Windows Phone 7. Only released last month, Windows Phone 7 has already generated lots of positive reviews and is set to shake up the smartphone market.

The event has been arranged by the recently formed Aberdeen Developers User Group - a non-profit group that has been created to benefit software developers in and around the Aberdeen area. Robert Gordon University is kindly hosting the event which has already attracted over 50 attendees.

Gary Park, founder of the Aberdeen Developers User Group, said: "We are absolutely delighted to welcome the two Mikes up to Aberdeen for what will be a very interesting and informative evening."

"It is not often that such coveted speakers travel this far north, yet we obviously have a large community of software developers in the North East. We intend this to be the first of many showcase talks over the coming years."

We would love to hear from you. Get in touch by email or phone us on 01224 261600.
