Puja Bihani

Introduction

I am in the final year of Bachelor in Computer Application. I have a great passion in technology, exploring new things, meeting people, sharing my knowledge, traveling around various places.

Journey of MSP: (MSP for Life)

The year was surely one of “The Best Year” of my life. This journey was full of learning so many things from small things like writing an email to a great deal of things like developing apps, sharing everything that I knew, developing leadership qualities, Lots of FRIENDS, love and care amongst each and every one we met during this tenure.

For others it would just be a program related to Microsoft but for us those who have lived the life of an MSP it’s a whole new life for each one of us. We really agree to the quote “Turning Caterpillars into Butterflies”.

Up Coming Journey:

I believe the upcoming journey would be much more amazing than that I have lived so far. I do expect big responsibilities coming my way and make great friends from different places, have lots of fun, and see what’s happening outside my country; learn from it and share it to the concerned ones so that we can improve if we lack behind in something so that “We can SHINE”.

Kimihito Matsui

Introduction

Hi there! My name is Kimihito Matsui from MSP Japan. I’m living in Tokyo, Japan and studying Computer Science at the graduate school of Aoyama University.

I’m working in the Global team at MSP Japan and making Asia Pacific News-Letter to share the activities with Asia Pacific countries.

Report

World Wide MSP Summit has definitely become one of the best experiences of my activities with MSP and my life. Before the MSP Summit I felt apprehensive because I never spent a week with so many people from abroad. However, I was excited because I knew this is an occurrence that may happen only once in my life. I find a lot of fulfillment in Seattle.

The most impressive thing in Summit was HoloLens. Unfortunately, I cannot share the details with you, but perhaps in the future. It is not in the market yet, but everyone will want to develop and use it. If you don’t know HoloLens, check this! (Microsoft HoloLens - Transform your world with holograms)

It was really exciting to get acquaint with students from all over the world.I’m really happy that we can keep in touch via Facebook and WhatApp. Although I sometimes can’t read their post because it is in there own language, it stimulates me knowing other countries MSP activities. It brings me motivation “we also have to try hard” “We can not be second to none”.

American Imaging Cup member and Microsoft employee guide me and Vietnam and Brazil MSPs to Seattle city. While we were sightseeing with them we talk about our country University, IT education and IT trend.
Through talking with another country MSPs, I found out that interest of the IT education is really high in many countries. I got surprised at Imagine Coding Camps, because a kindergartener and an elementary school student are programming with TouchDevelop. It will be hard to happen in Japan because many people still thinks cording and understanding programing will be really hard.

I also check Imagine Cup Final. It was pity for me to know the fact that Japanese team missed out. I believe Japanese team will win because they were accomplished by other MSPs.
They also win acclaim from another countries MSP so I believe the win. I couldn’t understand why that happen. But I get know that the difficulty of competing on the international stage. Another team also spent a lot of time to crate a product and they are really good at presentation and English. Japanese are not good in English and presentation. We are really shy, also me. It isn’t a easy thing to present and answer to the question in front of large number of people. I also make presentation in front of another MSP’s to share MSP Japan’s action and I get really nerves. I stumble and forget at my lines so it wasn’t perfect but it was great experience for me.

I want to be active on international stage in future and it isn’t easy but this experience should be my first step for my dream. I should get good in English, understand each culture, and courage to try much more. And I hope the member of MSP Japanese team member will also keep trying.

Finally, we share a lot of activities and tips for holding events and continuous development. And we also have gotten much closer than ever before. Although technology leads to a lot of growth, having the opportunity to meet people in person is still very important.
I hope I can meet again sometime, somewhere to my family.

Jason Wihardja

Introduction

Hi, my name is Jason Wihardja from Indonesia, and I have been a MSP for about 3,5 years. I was a MSP region lead for Jakarta and its surrounding areas. I started programming when I was in high school and got fascinated with it until now. I enjoy learning new technologies and don’t mind being an early adopter.

I joined MSP not long after Windows 8 was launched in Indonesia. At the time, Microsoft was organizing a training for university students to teach them how to make Windows 8 apps. What amazed me was the fact that most of the trainers are students. Then I asked myself, how could it be? How can students understand pretty much everything about a product that just being launched? It must be really cool to be one of them. It turns out that those students were MSPs. And that’s how I become an MSP.

Report

The MSP Worldwide Summit has been an absolutely amazing experience for me. It's great to be granted a chance to meet literally the best MSPs from around the world. And we learned a lot. We learned about how to get a job in tech industry, how to properly pitch our idea, the social insider program, and many more.

And what really got me excited, even before I was departing to Seattle, was the holographic academy. The feeling of being a select few who have ever experienced hololens is priceless.

In one of the sessions we also got a chance to present what programs works well and what doesn't. It's nice to know that Microsoft are listening to us. Our feedback is used to help shape the program in the future.
