Imagine Cup 2005

Hi folks

Thanks to Mr. Mukesh Kumar for inviting me into ln(exun). I’m an employee with Microsoft India – currently responsible for programs related to the Academic Developer Community. I have mostly been in touch with Engineering & MCA colleges but schools cannot be far behind.

Imagine Cup – is a worldwide contest for student developers. This time there are total 12 different contest categories for 2005 edition. Do have a look at http://imagine.thespoke.net for info. Just few things i want to point out here:

a) There is a Software Design category – which will be run as an India round where we select the national winner – who travels to Yokohama for world finals. Details about that in a later posting. All other categories are being run centrally from US right up to the world finals.

b) There are 3 “high-school” categories and 9 “open” categories. So school students can participate in all 12 while a college/masters/Phd student can only participate in 9.

c) Check out details of each category – there are some which have a “country quota” for round 2, so there are more chances of qualifying.

You can reach me at [email protected] for more on our programmes. I shall be happy to do a session around .NET at your school – if that is something you people whould like to have.
