Imagine Cup 2006

This is the fourth year of the Imagine Cup tournament that is happening.  Our goal with the Imagine Cup is to provide a forum for students around the world who are like-minded and passionate about using technology to solve real-world problems come toghther and show their best ideas.

Today, we have the Finals for the US Imagine Cup 2006 Software Design competition.  I got a chance to talk to the finalists at this event this morning.  As always, when I get a chance to talk to students and particuarly students who are jazzed about using technology I get excited about that.

The theme for this year's Imagine Cup is "Imagine a life where technology enables us to lead healthier lives".  I wish all the US finalists for the Software Design category all the very best.

The world-wide finals are going to be held in India later this year in August.  I hope to see at least some of you there.

    We have won the local IC round and are traveling to Imagine Cup Central&Eastern Europe finals to Maribor, Slovenia tommorrow and are VERY excited about the competition! It’s a great chance for students to show their passion with technology and ability to approach real world problems.

    Thanks to Microsoft for such a great competition!

  2. In Indonesia we’ll have the Software Design Final on next May 23rd.

    Yes, it’s always exciting to see what students have in their heads and how they can express that in code. Always refreshing.

    I got the honour to be one of the Indonesia national judges for Imagine Cup in Software Design. This time, it will be my third year being a judge. I always enjoy it!
