Microsoft Ignite is just around the corner. But there are some events that are open to all if you happen to be on the Gold Coast.

MeetUp Madness

Microsoft is proud to bring together 7 technical communities from all over Australia to host MeetUp Madness.  Join likeminded professionals in an informal gathering talking all things tech. Topics will cover SQL, Cloud/Azure, .NET, Xamarin X-Platform development, Office 365, SharePoint, Data Science and Infrastructure. Take the opportunity to learn something new, meet those with similar interests and it wouldn’t be a MeetUp without pizza, beverages and swag. This event is open to everyone and all are welcome. All MeetUps will be held concurrently, so choose one that takes your fancy and RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/en-AU/Microsoft-events-in-Australia/

Magikcraft Kids Coding: Can Garry Pottr save the world from the Zombie Apocalypse? 

Microsoft is partnering with BizSpark Startup Magikcraft to host a kids coding event on Monday 13th February at the Gold Coast from 4-6pm.  Using Minecraft, kids will learn to craft JavaScript spells and join the hero of the Magikcraft universe, Garry Pottr, as he versus the Zombie Apocalypse to save the world.  Kids aged 8 -14 will learn how to cast lightning bolts, fly through the air, and finally face the Zombie Horde.  As well as a fun way to learn to code, this is an actual, legit, official Guinness Book of World Records event.  We will be setting the world record for the most Zombies killed by JavaScript lightning in a period of ten minutes.  Places are limited, so get in quick and register now. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/magikcraft-zombie-apocalypse-learn-to-code-set-a-world-record-tickets-31439588656
