Alas, the reader meetups are over! But we had a great time meeting Perth Lifehacker readers last night, and everyone can still enter our competition to win a Nokia Lumia 710 phone.
At our final event, Rob Moore from Curtin University explained how the university is migrating its main student information system to Azure. The winner of the individual challenge round based on his presentation — who once scored a prize of Microsoft Visual Studio Professional with MSDN Essentials valued at $810 — was Matt McGlew. Congratulations Matt!
The trivia challenge saw four teams of WA’s finest fighting it out, and we ended up with a tie breaker between Team Awesomer and Tux. Ultimately, Team Awesomer won the day.
Our caption picture in Perth once again featured Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. Our favourite entry came from Jesse:
Thanks yet again to everyone who came along on the night, and a huge shout-out to Microsoft for making the whole experience possible. We’ll do it all again soon!
