Craig, Owen and I (all from Xero) went along to the Wellington Summer of Code session last night to demo Visual Studio, the .NET runtime and ASP.NET MVC to 30-ish eager and willing University Students.
It was an interesting time. Allfields hosted us in a couple of their training rooms, which was pretty cool as the students got to follow along using their own copies of Visual Web Developer. The Allfields facility is pretty good - each room had about 20 PCs for students to use, and the guys there set up a video link between the two rooms.
Students: If you're got .NET questions, be sure to sign up to the dot.net.nz mailing lists.
I'm looking forward to meeting with the students again as the programme continues, and hopefully work with one of them at Xero!
