A must-read: Free bar-tab, free food, a chance to win 1-months paid experience at Microsoft Australia.

Can it get any cooler than this? You bet.

Check out this event! A Windows 7 Tweetup just for the Uni crew with a free bar tab? That's pretty sweet...

The Tweetup is an event where University and TAFE students can come together, demo the latest tech gear going into the Student Share house, learn some cool things to do on your computer, and maybe win a few prizes. There will be some very cool competitions with food and drinks provided by Microsoft (and a chance to win a sweet Xbox if you're 1337 enough). You can also find out how you can win one months paid work experience with Microsoft Australia!

The event is open to all students who wish to come together and have some food & share a drink.

We had a very successful turnout at our Tweetup in March which took place at the Shelbourne Hotel, featuring some of Australia’s most influential Twitterati, Bloggers, IT journalists and online content creators in Sydney.

The Windows 7 Student Tweetup will be held at Hermann’s Bar, at University of Sydney Cnr City Road & Butlin Avenue, from 7pm on the 4th of May.

The event is free, but registration is required due to limited capacity (200 people). Register your attendance at: http://bit.ly/win7unitwtup

Tweet about the event using the #unitwtup hashtag.

We can’t wait to see you there!
