Last week I had a kind of session with MSPs at Microsoft Innovation Center, FAST-NU. The agenda of session was

  • Debugging Techniques: Visual Studio 2008
  • Workshops at respective universities on behalf of Emerging .NET Devs

In July, Emerging .NET Devs is planning to organize some workshops at different universities in Karachi to enable students to get familiar with current technologies in the software development industry such as C#, ASP.NET, Design Patterns. For this purpose, I thought that MSPs are really a point of contact for the universities and us.

Hence we communicated with them the vision of Emerging .NET Devs and the purpose of workshops. Almost everyone of them were interested in organizing such events 🙂 which I believe is really a good thing and I must appreciate their interest. Further we discussed some of the concerns in organizing workshops such as

  • What should be done to make the events as successful as possible
  • In which topics/areas students are interested
  • Timings/Date

The session last around 1 hour followed by Q&A. The MSPs showed their interest by raising their points of concern and suggestions. I’m looking forward for further collaboration with MSPs.
