Musings from my Internship and why you should do one!

So, I’ve recently finished a 6 week Internship at my University to research and develop a first prototype (Proof of concept) of a system to help classify Fresco images from Cypriot Churches. This all linked up to a documentary being made by Dan Frodsham. Filming for this wrapped up on the Monday just gone, was a bit intense! Had to redo my piece 3 times, being shot from different angles, just hope it turns out well now!

Campus Party Invite

So, recently I’ve been asked by Microsoft to help run their stall at Campus Party Europe,

Offering to cover my travel, accommodation and food expenses it seems like an opportunity too good to pass up! So I readily and gladly accepted the offer.

It involves spending every day at the week long event helping to promote Microsoft products and technologies, including Windows Phone and Surface. Also I get a chance to explore the event myself, gain experience and partake in some networking!

I’m very much looking forward to going and experiencing a big event like Campus Party as it’ll be the first of its kind I’ll have been too.

Be sure to keep an eye out on my Twitter¬†and here for updates throughout the week I’m there!
