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
"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."
