Well I was busy working at Bett 2010 today at Olympia despite the snow. I left for Olympia at 6.30am this morning and I was quite suprised when I stepped outside my door into 4 inches of snow.

Our Stand at Olympia has been very busy all day. See Below;

There has been a tremendous amount of interest in our Office 2010 suite of products , Sharepoint 2010 plus also Win 7 , HyperV . Plus also there was some really good demos and presentations happening on our Lecture Theatre Stand and our Demo Pods.

One of the products I was particularly interested in with a view to possibly using it at the next Digigirlz event we are holding in June 2010 was KODU .

Kodu is a visual programming language made specifically for creating games. It is designed to be accessible for children and enjoyable for anyone. It can be used on an Xbox 360 or on a pc with or without xbox 360 controller. this is available for free download from as a Technical preview copy from http://fuse.microsoft.com/kodu/. There is some great information around it here.

In addition to this was actually seeing Semblio in action which was raising alot of interest from the teachers and also Dreamspark.

Well I am back on duty tomorrow at BETT all day so please come along and talk to me. I have answered questions ranging from Xbox360 through to Movie Maker, Photostory and Windows 7 and Office 2010, and event Windows Live & hotmail accounts……mmmm not bad for a days work !
