There are many benefits to evangelizing diversity in the tech workforce. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2018, there will be a total of nearly 1.4 million computing-related jobs added in the U.S., an increase of 22% from 2008. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the number of people graduating from college with computer or information sciences degrees has been decreasing steadily since 2004. At this rate, fewer than one-third of the vacant computing jobs expected by 2018 could be filled by U.S. graduates with computing degrees. Increasingly, non-IT jobs require deep knowledge of computing as well. A computing major or minor provides a versatile skill set that crosses disciplines and is essential in today’s information economy.*Diversity Improves the Bottom LineTechnology companies with the highest representation of women in their senior management teams showed a higher return on equity than did those with fewer or no women in senior management. A recent study determined that racial and gender diversity were associated with increased sales revenue, more customers, and greater profits.*Diversity Enhances InnovationInformation technology informs all aspects of modern society. Incorporating women and people of color is vital to the future of technological innovation. When we bring a wider variety of people into IT, our innovation will be enhanced through the valuable contributions that diverse perspectives bring.*Diversity Promotes EqualityWith technology playing an increasingly crucial role in all of our lives, having more people from different backgrounds participate in its creation break down gender and racial economic inequalities.

Unity: Getting Started with Game Development by Microsoft
Unity is the currently most popular game development engine, providing both extensive tools as well as a powerful rending engine to enable a wide range of games on virtually all current platforms – including iOS, Android, Windows Store, Mac OS X, PlayStation, Xbox and many more. Major games like Deus Ex: The Fall, Angry Birds: The Piggies or Dead Trigger 2 were developed using Unity. Unity’s free edition and support for three programming languages (C#, JavaScript & Boo) makes the engine one of the best entries into game development. A powerful ecosystem, filled with many low-cost assets, many service providers and an virtually unlimited amount of education material available for free, enables big studios to cut down development time – and indie developers to build successful games.  Around four months ago I decided that 'd like to extend my JavaScript skills and get into game development. Today, my first game "Awesome Zombie Sniper" (http://bit.ly/12PNGEM) gets around 6,000 new players each day on Windows Store alone – and is probably the most fun and exciting side project I have personally done to date. In this session, I’ll give a 101 introduction into game development for both JavaScript and C# developers alike, while also presenting some of the learnings I have made as a moonlight indie game developer.
