Microsoft Campus Visit

Microsoft Campus Visit
Event on 2013-03-11 12:00:00

ExPlay is coordinating a unique opportunity to visit Microsoft's Campus… again! 

After missing our first date due to the diaobolical weather conditions this Janurary, we have managed to reschedule our visit to the Microsofts HQ. This exclusive site visit will give you the lowdown on Windows 8 game app development and the commercial opportunities that go along with that! Included will be a tour of the Microsoft Technology Centre and a chance to meet Dr David Brown to experience a demo of NuiVerse! If we can get enough people to make it along, Microsoft will also invite a huge keynote speaker to talk through game development and the games industry.

So, free lunch, insider developer knowledge, amazing guest speakers, lot's of cool technology and a Prize draw… the catch?

It's simple, you just have to get to Reading by midday on 11th March!
