Event Summary: Windows 7 House Party

We had a fantastic Windows 7 house party on Sunday, October 25th. I invited some of my friends and community contributors and Iโ€™m glad I hosted a Windows 7 House Party, it was really fun.

We started with one of the most famous feature of Windows 7 i.e. Aero Shake ๐Ÿ™‚ and then moving towards start menu and search options. Later I handed over my position to Taimur Asad, who is Microsoft Student Partner to continue the show on my behalf.

At the end, we did some Iโ€™m PC fun time ๐Ÿ™‚ Check out the video and make sure you watch till end ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you all for attending the party. I really had a great time and hope you all enjoyed as well. Also thank you Munir and Jadoon for tweeting about the event ๐Ÿ™‚

I will be hosting Windows 7 House Party at my home on 25th October. I have invited few of my friends and active community people in Karachi, Pakistan. This is an informal event and we will discuss some of the exciting features of Windows 7 ๐Ÿ™‚
