Last year, over 90,000++ full version Microsoft software were distributed to students around the country – from Manila to Bacolod and even as far as Cagayan de Oro. This year, the Microsoft Academic Team in partnership with the Microsoft Student Partners will again launch an anti-piracy campaign – BurnFest 2011: Work,  Play, Learn. LEGALLY!

Burn Fest 2011, is a follow up to last year’s OctoBURNfest where Microsoft Student Partners promote the use of legal, genuine Microsoft software. Through academic programs like MSDNAA and DreamSpark,  students and faculty are given easy access to the latest Microsoft software which they can use in their studies. And as part of the fest, the Microsoft Student Partners will  be doing technical sessions to train students on how to fully utilize the developer and designer tools and help them develop the skills to get the right job and power to change the world.

BurnFest 2011 highlights include:

  • Distribution of full version Microsoft Developer and Designer Tools
  • Talks and Hands-on workshops on the following technologies:
    • Microsoft Technology Updates
    • Microsoft in Education
    • Mobile Development
    • Web Development
  • X-box and Kinect Games

Let’s keep the fire burning! Don’t forget to bring your valid school ID, blank DVDs, external HDs, your personal laptops and get to copy the following GENUINE Microsoft software* for FREE:
