We started with the regular Microsoft Academic Initiative which included Microsoft Student Partner Program, CBEUG - Coimbatore User Group and Dreamsparkyatra.

Immediately after that we had a session by me on Robotics Studio. This time it was on the latest Robotics studio 2008 R2. A demo of a simple programming in robot was shown.

The afternoon was a mixture of sometechii, nontechii and fun stuff. We had a very cool and interactive session by Abhishek Suresh on Kodu and Powerpoint 2010. He explained the various latest features of it. Then we had the usual Tech GyaanMasala. As this session was a Hit in all the other events, we made it mandatory.
