We had really nice sessions today at our Seminar by Microsoft at NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi. The event started with a Qiraat by our user group member followed by the first presentation by Mr. Vaqar Khamisani who is a Developer Evangelist (DE) and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Manager for Microsoft Pakistan. He talked about various activities by Microsoft in Pakistan. Some of the upcoming event are ISV Community days and MSDN Week. He also gave the audience a brief review on the past activities especially Pakistan Developers Conference (PDC). After his presentation Mr. Ali Pasha started his talk on Designing for Deployment. Mr. Pasha has been working for Microsoft as a Program Manager in the Visual Studio division on the modeling tools (codenamed Whitehorse) scheduled to be released as a part of Microsoft Visual Studio Team System – Architect Edition. Audience get to know about the Visual Studio Team System, how it works and what benefits it can give to the developers. In the end he showed an excellent demo which is also available to download on MSDN TV. We will post the link after sometime on our site so stay tuned. After this Mr. Saad Syed started his speech on Windows XP Embedded.

I want to thank all the speakers for doing excellent sessions today, NED.net volunteers for working so hard in making a successful event, faculty of CIS department and the all the audiences for their overwhelming participation.
