Microsoft Windows Vista Launch Event was organized on March 28, 2007 during GATES 2k7, the Annual fest of GTBIT. (Read more about GATES 2k7 in the previous post).
The Windows Vista session was presented by Mr. Akshaya Sharma, Microsoft Student Partner Lead (North India). It featured an orientation of the newly launched Windows Vista and was attented by students of various colleges of Delhi.
The 45min long presentation very well articulated the key features of Windows Vista including the Aero User Interface, Predictive Search, Ready Boost, Security Features among others. The features were well demonstrated using real-time examples.
The presentation was followed by a short quiz, wherein a few random questions were asked from the audience. The winners were awarded with DVDs of Microsoft Visual Studio Express Edition and one lucky winner got a full licensed version of the Windows Vista Business Edition.
This was the first event organized by me as a Microsoft Student Partner. Another Windows Vista event was also organized during GATES 2k7, in which the participants were given a certain set of problems to be solved on Windows Vista. The problems included some system administration tasks, widows sidebar modification etc. The winners of this event got 100% discount coupons on Microsoft Cetifications. Both these events received a very encouraging feedback.
