India MVP Award Program Official Blog
The learnings, conversations, and activities continued on day 2 at Microsoft TechEd India 2011 in Bangalore, India.
MVPs had the chance to participate in not one or two, but three exclusive executive roundtables – Ramkumar Pichai, GM, Customer & Partner Experience, Microsoft, Bharat Shyam, GM, Developer Experience, Microsoft, and Brian Hall, GM, Windows Live & IE9, Microsoft. The interactions were very candid, frank, and honest, and the three executives and Microsoft folks were seen scribbling notes to take home feedback, suggestions, and some action points. From technical troubleshooting, to best practices of communities… everything was discussed.
Ofcourse, this was followed by a fun Community Evening hosted by user group associations – INETA, GITCA, and PASS. While India progressed to beat Australia in the quarter-finals at the Cricket World Cup 2011, it was exciting to watch the match with community folks with beer and grub in hand!
