Meet the Apps For Office Challenge Finalists!


In partnership with the Microsoft Office team, we challenged students around the world to come up with great concepts for an App for Office. Five teams from Canada, China, India, and Indonesia were chosen as semifinalists who took their winning proposals and got busy coding. And today, the Office team has chosen the two student teams who will bring their projects to Seattle for the Imagine Cup World Finals.

Congratulations to Team iGeek from China and Team CodeBlue from India for being chosen as our World Finalists!

These two teams will come to Seattle for the Imagine Cup World Finals where the Office team will judge their projects and decide on first and second place winners. The teams will also get time on campus with members of the Office team to review their projects and prepare to take their next steps towards publication in the Office Store.

Education Toolkit for Office by Team iGeek, China

This toolkit for Computer Science presentations turns PowerPoint into a first-class experience for reviewing code before a team or audience. It adds dynamic features familiar from development environments to PowerPoint including: Syntax Highlighting to automatically color-code function names, variables, etc., based on which language the code belongs to; Code Block Expand/Collapse to display or hide function bodies, classes, and comments during a presentation; Click-Jump to Function and Global Variable Definition so the presenter can click on a function name or global variable and jump to its definition; andCanvas Mode so the presenter can use a pen and eraser during a presentation to sketch and make notes on the code snippet being presented. With these features, anyone making a presentation on programming can greatly improve their talk and use these interactive features to review and discuss the code on screen.

Molecule Maker by Team CodeBlue, India

Representing molecules visually is critical for scientific and academic writing. Molecule Maker provides a library of molecule visualizations in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. These visualizations are available in both 2D and 3D models and can be extensively customized for the needs of the topic before the final result is embedded as an image. You can display the chemical formula, the molecular weight, and much more. For 3D representations you can rotate and zoom the model to focus on just what you need to get the perfect image. Molecules defined in the standard .xyz filetype (Molecular Storage file format) can be imported and rendered. This app will greatly improve documents and presentations for students and lecturers around the world.

We are looking forward to welcoming iGeek and CodeBlue to Seattle next month!
