March 6–9, 2013 | Denver, CO, United States

SIGCSE 2013 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 “The Changing Face of Computing,” which focused our attention on how computing is changing and how these changes affect computer education.

Microsoft was proud to be a Platinum Plus supporter of SIGCSE 2013. At our booth, researchers, evangelists, academics, and students showed attendees our latest tools, technologies, and programs that can help computer science educators teach, learn, and collaborate.
