A package from 2 friends


Actually from 3. No: 4!

During this summer, some of my Microsoft Student Partners colleagues were selected for internships in Redmond, at Microsoft’s headquarters. Among them were my 2 good friends, Bogdan and Razvan Hobeanu, who worked in two separate teams, in the Windows division. They had a pretty nice adventure there, along with some other friends like Andrei Csibi and Alex Ghiondea, but you can learn more from them, here [Romanian].

We even got to talk on the phone from time to time, and on one of the occasions I asked them to purchase for some things for me and my father.

Well, today my package arrived, delivered by Andrei, who was in a short trip in Cluj-Napoca. My father was very happy he received his spare parts for an electric appliance and I was for receiving the Logitech G7 gaming mouse. Pretty nice of the Hobeanu brothers.

But that’s not all! The package contained another “heavier” item. It was a copy of one of the most recommended books on the MS Campus: The C# Programming Language, Second Edition by Anders Hejlsberg, Scott Wiltamuth and Peter Golde. I was really surprised, as this was a very nice of them.

But that’s not all! The copy was signed by Anders Hejlsberg a.k.a The Father of C# and Scott Wiltamuth, Visual Studio and C# Program Manager. Now that is awesome!

So guys, this was a very nice and unexpected surprise! Thank you! I really appreciate it! Alex and Andrei, thanks for making this happen.

And Mr Hejlsberg and Mr Wiltamuth, thank you also!

    I am glad you like it! I would personally give a big thanks to Alex Ghiondea (http://weblogs.studentclub.ro/aghiondea). He is the one who helped us and made this possible :)
