Earlier this year following the Visual Studio 2010 release, I got a great package from Microsoft (MVP Program and Visual Studio Product Team) that included some complimentary Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN Subscription activation cards to give away. I hadn’t found the right opportunity but this Saturday I will be attending (and have submitted a session proposal) the Charleston Bar Camp. This should be a very interesting experience since it will be my first bar camp. Anyhow, I have been looking for ways to contribute and foster our local software development community in Charleston and decided I would like to give two MSDN subscriptions out during the event.
Two winners will receive a prize package that contains:
One (1) copy of Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2010 by Wrox
One (1) MSDN Subscription with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate (Not for Resale) Includes:
· Team Foundation Server 2010
· SQL Server 2008 R2
· Windows 7
· Windows Server 2008 R2
· Office 2010
· Office 2011 for Mac
· One-year of updates
One (1) copy of Professional Team Foundation Server 2010 by Wrox
Total Retail Value for Prize Packages: $24,007.96
Attendees to the Virtual Lab Management with Team Foundation Server 2010 session (if selected and scheduled) will have an opportunity to win one of the prize packages. Bring a business card with your name, company/occupation, city, e-mail address, and Twitter account. One lucky winner will be selected from the submitted business cards after the session has completed.
On the back of this page, write your “pitch” for why you think you should win one of the prize packages and what you would do with it if you were to win. The best pitch, as determined by the judge(s) will be selected to win the prize package. Bonus points are given for impactful local projects, giving back to the local developer community, or volunteering time & talents for a local non-profit organization.
