MS Research Award for a project in Argentina
On last thursday (11/Sep) i gave a conference at a Universidad Tecnológica Nacional
(in spanish only) here in Argentina, (about 1:40 hours by plane), talking aobut Windows NT Architecture. Past year i noticed that Microsoft Research had awarded
a research project in that university so i really want to mee the team. I had the chance to meet Ing. José Perez
who is the team leader, the project is about a solucion supported on Windows CE (with Compact Framework), for anesthesiologists. José is very young an d a nice guy, he's very produd of his achievment, and the whole team (10 people) is working in the university to get this project running. He really likes .Net technologies, Remoting and WebServices, here's an interview
One of the most important thing about it, is that Carlos is hosting the project in the university with graduates, teachers and sudents and the laboratory he had created for this project will stay there, which is a public university with some budget problems. The University is in Resistencia city (Chaco province head) which had 250.000 inhabitants, i mean is not one of the main cities in Argentina.
Carlos told me they are going to apply with a new project this year, i hope they keep walking this way.
