NYIT Students Visit NYC Microsoft Headquarters for DVLUP Day

On March 22, 2014, a group of NYIT undergraduate and graduate Computer Science students ventured to an exciting event co-sponsored by Microsoft and Nokia at the new Microsoft headquarters in Times Square. The event, DVLUP Day, was a tech meetup lead by professional software developers from Microsoft and Nokia to showcase new programming software for apps and games for Windows Phone. Because Windows Phone is currently the fastest growing mobile platform, SoECS students at the event sought to gain some valuable knowledge and insight into the current market in preparation to enter the ever-evolving tech job market. DVLUP Day was a marathon 12-hour information session in which the 300+ attendees could network with established industry professionals, and learn about game development, location services, app design, and more at a series of specialized workshops.

While at the event, NYIT students learned how to create and edit apps and games for Windows Phone. Pranav Krishnamurthy, an SoECS graduate student, created an update for the Campus Slate App for Windows Phone, which was tested, approved, and published that day by Microsoft Developers--who gave his work a 5-star rating! Of the meetup, Krishnamurthy had to say: "it was a really great day, since I was able to network with many professionals from various companies and also make some new friends with students from other universities."
