About MSDN Australia News and Events

This Blog is written by Kyle Price.  I am the Audience Marketing Intern for Developers and Designers at Microsoft Australia.  I commenced in the role in late 2009 having spent a looong time at uni. I intend to blog about what goes on here at Microsoft, relevant to developers.  This could cover anything from an interesting learning resource or course I come across to an event we are planning or I've covered.  I am always open to suggestions.

Looking forward to adding value to your day, your careers and your lives!
