Microsoft Imagine Cup 2009 : Shall we form a team ?
Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on January 31, 2009
Dear All ,
I received an email from dotnetforum.lk announcing the imagine cup 2009. Last year also i wanted to be there at this tournament but failed to do so. This time the competition is centered on an interesting topic – MDG (Millennium Development Goals). This competition inspires students to create solutions to tackle the millennium development goals.
I am pretty interested on the mashup competition. It allows you to use the latest mashup flatform of windows named http://www.popfly.com. It requires Microsoft Silverlight to be installed. I played with it at my office using my XP box , however here at my home i have an ubuntu box. There is a ubuntu alternative for Silverlight named Moonlight. Hope i will be able to use that.

- Find more information about other contests from here. (There are many other contests. Software Design , Short Films , Photography, etc)
- Read the contest guidelines
If anyone is interested in forming a team for imagine cup please let me know. (Simply comment to this post) That would be an honor to our country and if we win the competition we get big $$$$$ .
Best of luck if you are participating. This could be a good chance for you!
