MS Weekend for Beginners

Microsoft student champs at our faculty had organized an introductory session on Microsoft .Net framework last Saturday(25th Nov). I conducted 2 sessions there, "Introduction to .Net Framework" and "Introduction to Windows Application Development with C#".
It was organized for the Level1 Semester1 students. Nearly 50 students participated for that event. Wajira (MS Student Ambassador) also conducted a session on "Introduction to ASP Web Development ". This was the first public technical session conducted by me. It was a wonderful experience to share what I know with other.
Some wonderful prices also given away to the students at that event. Those included CD pack containing Visual Studio 2005 Standard Edition and SQL Server 2005, 5 button optical mouse and few technical magazines...
You can download the presentation I did on "Introduction to .Net Framework" here.

Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts

Are you a Firefox lover? Like to use FF without using the mouse. Most of the power users hate mouse, they want to use keyboard for every thing. I've to admit that I'm not a power user. But knowing few shortcuts can save lot of your time. These are few shortcut that you can use in FF.

To use the keyboard shortcuts hold down CTRL and press one of the following:

TOpens a new tab and takes the focus to the new tab
OOpen Local File. This is one of the biggest changes from IE where both Ctrl-O and Ctrl-L opened a dialogue box for a URL.
LChanges focus to the Address bar
TabScrolls through the tabs from current window towards the right. Loops back to the first tab when rightmost tab is reached
1..0The numbers 1 to 0 takes the focus to Tab 1 to 10
NOpens a new window like IE
Wa tab or if there are no tabs, close the window
BOpen bookmark sidepanel
