Students and faculties are always been demanded for the training programs to get updated with the technology. But it was the first time that Microsoft came up with the idea which is called Train the Trainer or Faculties at the Microsoft Faculty Connect Symposium which happened at Microsoft, Gurgaon from 20th June, 2011 to 23rd June, 2011.
In this program Microsoft called all over India’s engineering colleges to send their best faculties to get trained by the technology experts in the Microsoft’s campus itself. Even this training was delivered by so many tech enthusiasts which includes few of the India MVPs & RDs and few Microsoft Evangelists.
In this program MVPs like Vinod Unny & Amit Bansal were there to deliver the sessions on Visual Studio 2010, ALM & Business Intelligence, respectively. Whereas Microsoft Evangelists like Bijoy Singhal, Ritu Chaturvedi, Saranya Sriram, Sukhvinder Ahuja, Ramaparsanna Chellamuthu etc. who delivered the their own interest technology’s session. Our Amit Bansal
represented SQLServerGeeks.com and delivered the session on Business Intelligence was really a favorable of all and every individual appreciated his way of delivering the session. He also told us few of the those things for the BI which we never heard before like ‘BI for everyone’ was actually the idea few years back but now it’s possible through SharePoint & Office 2010.
Even, Amit is a speaker for so many events and trainings but there is always something new to learn from his sessions and demos.
In Microsoft Faculty Connect Program we also got to see AICTE’s Chairperson, NASSCOM Chairperson, and Microsoft Education Program Manager for the keynotes. Microsoft Faculty Connect was organized by Microsoft’s Academia Team including Venkatesh Sarvasidhi, Aditya Mohan, Pratima Amonkar and few MSPs (Microsoft Student Partner) Geetika Ahuja, Shourya Taneja,
Avni Gupta, Yashika Goyal, Surbhi Agarwal, Aniket Bera and including our RCs (Regional Co-Ordinators) Rishu Mehra & M. V. Priyank were the volunteers for the program.
