As in every function we had a inaugural starting with lighting a lamp (“Kuttu Vilakku").
We were really embarrassed and also a bit nervous when we sat on the Dias with the Principal, Administrative Director, and Head of the Department of IT Dept. We were really proud when the Administrative Director said "It’s really nice to see 4 boys from their 3rd yrs and that too from a new college sitting next to me in the Dias". We had audiences around 500+ which included
• 2nd & 3rd year CSE
• 2nd & 3rd IT
• 1st &2nd MCA
As usual we started with the introductory session about our User Group, Microsoft Student Partner program, Microsoft Academic Initiatives. Meanwhile we were also conducting Group Discussion and selecting Students for AIESEC interview.
Then technical sessions that included Into to .NET, VS2008, Expression Studio, Demo on Expression blend and Linq, Virtual PC 2007.

2. Selva Prabhu II yr IT
3. Rajkumar III yr CSE – A

We had many funny and interesting answers from the students, Selva Prabhu II yr IT who got the maximum vote, won a GENUINE VISTA BUSINESS. After the conference everyone appreciated us and from the heart thanked us. The HOD of IT department attended the whole session and was extremely happy about the success of the event. He said he had done a mistake of not calling us long back itself, to his college.
After the conference we took Interview for AIESEC and winded up.
