‘Wow’ Launch @ QUT

March 17, 2007 Leave a comment

Last Friday 16th March at QUT, students have gathered up for the Windows Vista/Office and ImagineCup 2007 Campus Launch Event. Over 230 students came to see the WOW of Windows Vista, Office 2007 system, and Imagine Cup 2007.

Marty Gnanananthan and Charles Sterling have superbly presented and have motivated the entire audience to upgrade to Vista and Office 2007. As most of the audience came from the Faculty of IT, the agenda covered:

  • Windows Vista (Marty & Charles)
  • Office 2007 Ultimate and itsnotcheating promo (Charles & Marty)
  • Expression & WPF (Charles)
  • ImagineCup 2007 (Griffith)



Lucky top price winner, Hi-End MS Optical Mouse


Many thanks to the Microsoft DPE team (particularly Marty, Charles, and Bernard Oh) for the support and resources; Jason Weiss from QUT, to help in booking the venue. Also ITSA (IT Student Association) for helping distributing Vista DVDs.

ImagineCup promo to ITB/N218 students

March 6, 2007 4 comments

This early morning (9am !!!) i presented the ImagineCup 2007 to the ITB/N218 – application programming class. 9am is probably too early for students to turn up – small audience of 20. There will be a repeat class this friday, hoping more students will come for this lecture.

Thanks Jack for the pictures and lecturer Michael Adams for allowing the presentation to happen.
