Community Tech-Days is coming to Ahmedabad again. The event is scheduled to be on 3rd October 2009. I look forward to see many of you in the venue on 3rd October.
What is Community Tech-Days?
Community Tech-Days is a technology event organized by Microsoft to help IT Professionals and developers catch up with the latest technologies and development methodologies. This event is pretty much close to the ‘Tech-ED On the Road’ we had recently.
The Community Tech-Days website says “Dive deep into the world of Microsoft technologies at the Community TechDays and get trained on the latest from Microsoft. Build real connections with Microsoft experts and community members, and gain the inspiration and skills needed to maximize your impact on your organization while enhancing your career.”
I agree with the description 100%.
