I was wandering around the website, Microsoft education, www.microsoft.com/education, which is very interesting. I believe it must have something for you. It will be a big resources about technology and education, mostly concerned Microsoft products such as Windows devices and software. They have online training.
They have online seminars and educational videos. They at least can teach you how to use windows OS in basic. Then they will also teach other higher level technology stuffs. There is also an education network, where you can find partner for learning. They help not only students but also educators. If you are an educators who gonna change the country by education, Microsoft will help you. Right now, Microsoft don’t have any business office in Myanmar, but they have in-direct relations with some local technology companies. In the near future, they will enter Myanmar for sure and start running business. If you are an expert or professional, working on Microsoft platform, you have higher opportunities than other to work in Microsoft.
You can register your startup business in the website. But I don’t see Myanmar country in the eligible list. Whatever, ideabox Myanmar, startup community partnered with Microsoft. Entrepreneurs and startups who registered as members of ideabox get chances to use some premium developers tools of Microsoft for free. Technology geeks from Microsoft are having workshops in Myanmar too. In Net Monday event held by Telenor Myanmar, some geeks from Microsoft came share their knowledge and idea. They are also having programs to help Myanmar. But according to some political case, I don’t know if US government don’t allow Microsoft and many US tech companies start running their business in Myanmar. However, HP’s life project education program is starting. If I get the news about Microsoft activities for Myanmar, I will share you. For now, just visit the website and get sources for learning!
