Those nice folks at Bind have sent me an update to the event I posted about a month back.
Bing Developer event at Tech Days this year!
A reminder that the UK Bing team is running an event at Tech Days on Thursday 26th May. Come along and as well as hearing the latest on Bing and Bing Maps APIs, you’ll have a chance to win top prize in the draw – an Xbox 360, Kinect and games bundle*! All promises to provide a great update on how Bing tools can be used, with examples of new, powerful applications. There’s a Q&A session via a developer panel, and the opportunity to network over drinks in the last session.
The event has some excellent speakers from Microsoft UK and EMEA, with Microsoft partners – all of whom are experts in their field. It will be covering the Bing design philosophy and approach to solution development, our Webmasters Kit for Search Engine Optimisation, Bing Maps applications and Bing Mobile Map Control.
Running from 4.15pm to around 8pm at Cardinal Place, 100 Victoria Street, SW1E 5JL, the outline agenda is:
