Event Details

Don't forget to bring your business card to enter the draw for XBOX and Kinect! The hashtag for this event is #webnotwar. See you guys tomorrow-gonna be fun!

 

 

Please join us for a fun night of socializing with your local community! We (Microsoft Canada) are coming to town from Toronto and would love to meet the local Vancouver tech community.

Why are we coming to town?

We'll be hosting a big technology event in Vancouver, this coming May, called Make Web Not War. Make Web Not War (MWNW) is one of Canada’s first cross-platform conference showcasing the latest techniques and technologies available to the ever-evolving web community, jointly sponsored by Microsoft and Open Source communities across Canada. Last year the event was in Montreal and the year before was held in Toronto. http://www.webnotwar.ca/

As part of the event planning, we'd like to create an Open Source week leading up to Make Web Not War. We already have one event confirmed, thanks to some very awesome Vancouver peeps! Here is the URL. http://wordcampdevelopers.com

What will the night look like? About 7:30pm, after everyone has grabbed some food and a cocktail, we'll do a fun intro game so everyone knows who is there. (Don't worry -our guest list is limited to 50 people)

We'll then show you a quick video of last year's event and talk briefly about Vancouver Open Source week. We also want to tell you about a coding competition we're launching in March called "Code Your Art Out".

At 9:45 we will be giving away a Kinect and Xbox! Don't forget to put your business card in the draw when you arrive.

Drinks and appetizers will be provided.

Please contact Julia via email at a-julist@microsoft.com or on Twitter http://twitter.com/#!/InteropQueen with any questions about this event.

We look forward to meeting you/seeing you again soon!

Also, feel free to bring along a friend if you think they'd be interested in this sorta thing.
