Microsoft Innovation Center Ignites Developer Ideas

The UP Microsoft Innovation Center (UP MIC) will be conducting series of sessions every Tuesdays of October 2010, every 1-5pm at the UP Microsoft Innovation Center located at 3rd flr, Rm 301, National Engineering Center (Juinio Hall), University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. These sessions will be delivered by our very own MIC Interns, Leo Luis and Drei Alquiros who are both skillfully trained in Microsoft technologies.

These sessions encourages students to not only learn new technologies but to improve their skills by developing actual applications that work. It’s also our way of igniting their ideas by providing them access to software and technology, training and support, and of course, resources that they can use to come up with cool projects* of their own.
*The UP MIC will help students develop their own project ideas but will not own the students IP.
