Immediately after that we had a session on the Introduction to the .Net Framework. used my .net framework example. Krish’s session on Windows Mobile followed. A demo of a simple program was shown, the audience were highly impressed by this session. After that was the interesting session by Abhishek Suresh on Windows Presentation Foundation, usage of simple terminologies and everyday items he clearly explained the concept.


The afternoon was a mixture of some techii, non techii and fun stuff. The session was followed by the session by Abhishek Suresh on Windows Azure. He explained the various latest features of it. The audience responded to all the questions posed and the session was fun. Then we had the usual Tech GyaanMasala. As this session was a Hit in all the other events, we made it mandatory.
