    EduGeek Competition: Win a MSDN Subscription worth £10,000

    Iíve been given a Microsoft MSDN Subscription to give away to the great community that I am part of. The prize has come from Microsoft and Iíve been given free rain on how to give this out.

    What is MSDN?
    MSDN stands for Microsoft Developers Network and is a community of how to documentation and code on Microsoft products. It ranges from SharePoint to ASP.NET to Windows Server.

    The subscription is worth over £10,000 (according to Amazon) and includes most Microsoft software including some of the golden oldies like: Windows 3.1 (16 bit), SharePoint 2001 and Project 95 and some of the more recent products include Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Office 2010.

    You can see what is available to download here Download - Home page

    How do I enter?
    One of my passions is to share my experience with the online community and I want to encourage others to do that as well.

    We are looking for your stories on how you have implemented a product into your school and how it has either effected you personally, your team or the the whole school. It doesn't just have to be a product, it could be a fix, the FITS Framework or a whole new network.

    If you want to enter you can submit you entries to Alex Pearce at apearce@bfcnetworks.com by 1st November 2010. You must keep within the 500 word limit as well.

    How will it be judged?
    There are 5 members of the judging panel who will make the final decision of the winner. They will be judging on the following.
    1. Innovation. How innovative was the change?
    2. Impact. How the change to your network impacted you, the team or the school?

    Closing date is 1st November 2010 and the winner will be announced on the 15th November 2010.

    If you want to enter you can submit you entries to Alex Pearce at apearce@bfcnetworks.com.

    I have only just seen this. My question is does it have to be about your current workplace. The reason I ask is that I worked for a school where I have an excellent success story, but I left there 10 months ago to become a full time trainer (although still work with said school!)

    Where do I go to activate an MSDN subscription - only I won one for visual studio 2010 from experts exchange and have got the key code etc and can't see how to activate it.

    Tried going to the link mentioned in the card I have but keeps giving me an error page

    msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/activate

    At least that is where it states to go but the site does not work

    It is part of the intelligence test to become a coder ... you have to logically work it out for yourself (including sorting out who you go to for support and advice).

    Does this still need to be a sticky?
