Kevin recently completed his Software Engineering MSc at the University of York and was also successful in winning the UK Final in 2010!

If that wasn’t enough, first place winners each received a HP Mini Netbook, a Windows Phone 7 device, a certificate and an Xbox 360 game.

Manager of the IT Academy, Andrew Bettany said “It is great that a York student entered this Microsoft competition and has won this prestigious award. It is even more astonishing that he has won it twice!  Well done Kevin and this is great news for the University.”

Good luck Kevin, and enjoy New York!
