SIGCSE 2012

February 29–March 3, 2012 | Raleigh, NC, United States

SIGCSE 2012SIGCSE 2012 brought together colleagues from around the world to address problems that are common among educators who work to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses. It provided a forum for sharing new ideas for syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy, at all levels of instruction. This year’s theme was “Teaching, Learning, and Collaborating.” Microsoft was a Platinum Supporter of SIGCSE 2012.

Microsoft is proud to be a sponsor of SIGCSE 2012. Visit us at our booth where 30 researchers, evangelists, academics and students are eager to show you our latest tools, technologies and programs that can help computer science educators teach, learn and collaborate.
