MSDN Connection launch in New Zealand

MSDN Connection launch in New Zealand
New Zealand's version of the developer recognition program called MSDN Connection was launched at the Security Summit 2004 in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch.

MSDN Connection is a card carrying membership program based on peer recognition. The program has three levels of membership which has been structured to bring all developers together regardless of whether a student or leader in the field, and encourage them to become active participants in the community.

  • Recognised Developer (Students and the novice developer)
  • Active Developer (Microsoft Certified Developer and/or Active participant in the community)
  • Dedicated Developer (MVP, MSDN Regional Director, User Group President, Developer Community Influential)

    Membership to the program is free.

    This initiative recognised the cost barrier that impeded some developers from posting their code or creating blogs locally, and the importance of skilling our developers and making sure they know where and when their peers meet in each region via user groups. For this reason Microsoft have partnered with some of the local companies equipped to support New Zealand developers to deliver members the following benefits:

  • ASP.NET Web Hosting
  • .NET Asia Magazine
  • Partner Discounts
  • MSDN Flash

    Members also receive a membership card which is actually an RFID smart card!
