Walter Stiers from the Academic Relations Team at Microsoft Belgium & Luxembourg is also hosting a specific track for academics (students, teachers, professors) at the Developer & IT Pro Days. Initially this track was exclusively for the academic audience. Since some of topics in that track might also interest others, we've decided to open up those sessions for regular attendees too. If you want to attend some of the sessions, please remember that these sessions are tailored towards academics and not professional developers or administrators. Here is the session list for academic track:
