We are happy to announce that we are offering students free of charge entry to TechDays, the largest Swiss Microsoft technology event taking place on October 20-21, 2011, at the Kursaal Bern. This is a great change for you to hear best highlights of BUILD Windows, the first Windows 8 deep-dive conference, which will take place on September 13-16, 2011, in USA.

We will organize a separate full-day program for each audience, IT Professionals and Developers, and on both days we are providing sessions in German, French and English. Students can select 1-Day Ticket (normal price CHF 240.-) for either of the conference days:

TechDays 11 Bern for IT Professionals, October 20, 2011

IT Professionals receive latest information and demos on the new generation of Windows Client (Windows 8) and Windows Server, the next SQL Server release, the new System Center family and much more.

TechDays 11 Bern for Software Developers, October 21, 2011

Besides the traditional topics of Web, Phone and Cloud, Windows 8 is at the spotlight as a development platform. The day’s program will cover all the novelties from the BUILD Windows conference.

A detailed TechDays 11 Bern agenda will be published after the BUILD Windows conference. You will be able to create your own schedule for each conference day.

This is the first time ever we are able to offer students free entrance to the professional TechDays conference, so don’t miss the opportunity but register now for TechDays 11 Bern at www.techdays.ch – and bring along your friend as well!

I hope to see you in Bern,
