Microsoft Philippines has partnered with your hard-working Techie team (ehem!) as well as with other prominent brands like Accenture, Dell, Lenovo, Nokia, dBWizards, Fujitsu and PLDT to help bring one of its biggest local events of the year to Pinoy geeks. Called Innovation Universe 2012, the 3-day affair will feature some of the latest tech innovations and products as well as IT competitions that will put together some of the country's best young developers.
Innovation Universe 2012 is actually a combination of three Microsoft events namely the Server Summit, Who Dunn I.T. and Imagine Cup 2012. The Server Summit will showcase the latest in Microsoft's server family as well as show enterprises how to improve their IT infrastructures. Who Dunn I.T., meanwhile, will focus on giving IT professionals and skilled developers a peek at the Big M's newest innovations on mobile devices and cloud computing. Lastly, the Philippine leg of Imagine Cup 2012 will also be held which will challenge Pinoy IT students to come up with ways and insights on how technology can be used to help solve global problems.
Needless to say, Innovation Universe 2012 will be one huge event filled with all the tech talk and goodies our geeky little hearts desire. It will be held from March 21 to 23 at the SM Megatrade Hall. For more information, check out the official press release below.
