WinToolZone - Spelunking Microsoft Technologies

Inside and Out... An attempt to understand technology better...
I returned from the Students Advocates Day conducted by Microsoft India's Academic Evangelism Team where I talked about where Microsoft is headed from the perspective of its developer tools. So, I talked about the next version of the .NET Framework [2.0] and how we can align our development for Longhorn.

Upon return, got to know from Deepak yesterday that I have been nicknamed Terror by the students!

Wondering why - ??? Any pointers?

ha ha! good going!

i could probably give a few possibilities:
1. you might have spoken a lot of tech which you're capable of - and which might have scared the students.
2. did any of the students ask you any "silly" questions - you could really lose your temper somebody did :)
3. you didn't realize that you were possessed by a ghost and don't have any memories of what you did on stage :)

anyways, nice nick to earn eh?

Well..I learnt of this too. It seems that I've been nicknamed the "Master" (dont ask me why). So when we had that argument/discussion on MSN groups and forums, people rushed over to watch the Terror taking on the Master. Makes me feel as if I'm in one of those arcade video games :-)
