17 Hackers volunteered to spend the Saturday together to develop innovative projects. And they had plenty of ideas! During this intense day, we brainstormed, shared, coded, worked, laughed, ate, drank coffee … and had fun! On Friday, October 23, two Microsoft collaborators, among others, joined us to select the winner of the first edition of the Negotium Hackathon.

Microsoft Student Partner

Vincent Biret talks about his MSP experience

On November 24, 2015, Vincent Biret participated as MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) to a feedback for MSPs. 

What is a MSP? A MSP is a Microsoft Student Partner. They are students passionate about technology who wish to develop skills, manage communities and collaborate with professionals. These students are part of the Microsoft MSP program and have the opportunity to participate in events of all kinds throughout the year and also meet professionals.

This is the case of Vincent Biret, our SharePoint MVP. He began his career at Microsoft as MSP between 2010 and 2013 and then became MVP in 2014.

During this feedback organized for the MSP from Montreal, local former MSP that became MVP as Vincent could introduce the MVP program which is a logical continuation. They also shared their careers and how to make the right choices out of school. This program means a lot to Vincent who, as a former MSP, was able to provide a retrospective on what the program has brought to him and what students can learn.
