In our first presentation today (in Polish, from PKN Koszalin Vol. 8), Bartłomiej Zielonka shares the activities of a local knight's company. Following the presentation by Marek Czechowski, now you can see the Teutonic Knights in action! Training their skills regularly, they get together wearing the original knight outfits, revealing that being a real warrior yelding a bow and sword these days is still possible. Armina Mkhitaryan's presentation (from PKN Istanbul Vol. 14) covers some of the latest Microsoft technologies, everything from the Kinect to the innovative projects implemented by the Microsoft Innovation Center in Armenia. Posters No new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so we take this opportunity to highlight the second poster that was added yesterday, for PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11. The event will happen on July 13 at Green Spaces. Photos Today's gallery [Flickr] comes your way from the recent PKN Guangzhou Vol. 10, and that's what you're seeing above as well. We're not quite sure what's happening in the third photo, but it must have made for an intriguing presentation. Calendar Here's what you'll find on tonight's (July 5) agenda: PKN Semarang Vol. 9, PKN Augsburg Vol. 1, and PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7.
