@MSKAPIHAN goes to Subic!



Microsoft Philippines Community members, Student Partners (MSP) and Most Valuable Professionals (MVP) just finished the 3rd MSKAPIHAN which was done in XTREMELY XPRESSO CAFÉ in Subic.


Nice to see familiar and re-joined faces there, Jeff and Maan were there, Punzie is there as well! Good to see youre back Punzie! (Nice talk about F# BTW)


We had the chance to have a bonding moment with the Microsoft Student Partners in this MSKAPIHAN, it was refreshing to have newer faces and FRESHER in the tech group. I hope the MSP’s had a their share of key take-aways in this session.



In this session, there are several topics had been discussed. Like introduction to typical deployment scenarios using Visual Studio 2010, a brief discussion on Team Foundation Server 2010 (unit testing, gated check-ins, continuous integration build and scheduled build) not to mention F# but the main topic had revolved around the Windows Azure platform, SQL Azure and Azure Storage. Some in-depth discussion that was also mentioned is using LINQ on SQL Azure, performance and so much more! (Wish you were there huh?)



Hope to see the recording and share it here!


Food is great! Calamares and the lunch is babyback ribs with fries and corn, YUM!


After the tech talk, is a photography walk. MVP Allan Magune shooting across the street

The bonding and funny moments with the community!
