Kochi to host Microsoft DreamSpark Yatra 2011


Kochi: The Kerala Microsoft User Group (K-MUG) Student’s Chapter is organising the Microsoft DreamSpark Yatra in Kochi on April 02, 2011. This is an initiative by Microsoft India to empower students who are passionate about technology and to give them an insightful overview of the current trends in the software industry.

The half day session which will highlight the latest technologies, softwares and other Microsoft academic programmes for students will be held at Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology, Kakkanad. The event is set to be one of the biggest of its kind in Kerala, targeting about 1,000 students from different colleges.

In a release, Sreejumon K P, Founder of K-MUG said “IT Students in Kerala don’t have many learning opportunities in Kerala compared to the other IT hubs like Bangalore, Hyderabad or Pune. By conducting the DreamSpark Yatra 2010, K-MUG is bringing quality sessions on latest technologies to Kerala free of cost. Our intension behind DSY is to broaden the technical horizon of the students pursuing or willing to pursue a career in Computer Science / IT and inject them with real-world skills.”

Dedicated sessions on the emerging Cloud Computing technology will be taken by Satish Sangameswaran, Head of Student Outreach Programmes for the Developer & Platform Evangelism group at Microsoft India. The other sessions will cover topics such as Windows Phone 7 App development using Visual Studio 2010, Windows Phone Emulator and Windows Programming – some strategies to build a career and many more.

The Microsoft DreamSpark Yatra is being held in more than 100 cities across India for students whose studies touch on technology, design, math, science and engineering; as well as student technology hobbyists keen on pursuing a career in the field. All attendees are given a participation certificate from Microsoft and a DreamSpark Key which allows them to download many genuine Microsoft Professional Softwares free of cost.
