Coursework prize

Today I recieved a prize, donated by Microsoft, to the tune of £50 for my efforts in the analysis and programming coursework in my SE20 module work last semester. Third place it might have been, and £50 may not be much but out of the whole year taking the module its still something to be rather proud of.

I will be meeting a representative from Microsoft in a few weeks time along with the other two winners (congratulations to Matt and Mai – especially Matt for such an outstanding set of marks) so it should be interesting to get their views on modern software development and the rise of the open source movement, in particular my own open source project work over on RouterTech. If anyone has anything they think I should be discussing with a representative from Microsoft then feel free to contact me and I’ll try and make sure it gets mentioned in the course of my meeting with them, time permitting of course.

    Well done Kieran and like you say, its not the money side of things (although yeah more would have been great ;-)) it’s an acknowledgment to the time and effort that you have put into coursework. A great deal of satisfaction I would presume so in good old english terms; Jolly well done young man!

    Congrats Kieran, you deserve it given how much work you do. If you could raise the issue of myself being an excellent candidate to take over as chairman when Bill Gates steps down, that would be much appreciated.

    Well done Kieran – I’m sure it’s very well deserved.
