We've had a great time here on the Microsoft UK Student blog over the past few years, but it's time to move to a new home. We've thought long and hard about how we run social media for tech-mad students as well as developers in the UK, and have decided to create a brand new site for all UK developer content. This will include how to's, industry news, events coverage and peer to peer stories. Why not take a look?
We know many of you are developers first, students second, but want to make sure you still get all the content specific to life as a student that’s relevant, interesting and useful to help you through your chosen course. We’re migrating the content from the Microsoft UK Students blog across slowly but surely, and you can find all the student specific articles on the new site here http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/developers/articles#students/ As part of the move we have a new Twitter handle, @msdevuk, and we'll be retiring @msukstudents. We will make sure we highlight student specific content on the new site. Within the next few weeks @msdevuk will become the single account on Twitter related to everything from the Microsoft dev team in the UK – including the Microsoft Academic Team. Make sure you're following @msdevuk to keep on top of events, news, views and discussions.
You can still connect with the UK Academic team – Phil, Rebecca and Lee below - on their Facebook page as we want to keep the conversations focused on you, as a student who loves technology.
We'd welcome your thoughts on the change - please comment below or email us and tell us what you think!
