Registration for this years event is now open!! They have now updated the sites with more information about this years competition and now you can setup your team for the different areas.
The competitions this year are:
- Software Design
- Embedded Development
- Web Development
- Project Hoshimi – Programming Battle
- IT Challenge
- Interface Design
- Short Film
Some are group based, while others you can work on individually.
The main competition (for me) is software design where teams of upto four students are invited to design software based around a theme. As previously posted, the theme for this year is Imagine a world where “technology enables a better education for all”. This is the one I am planning on entering, just need to find a team. First you have to win the UK based round, before being invited to Korea. Can’t wait!
Think I am also going to try my hand at the Algorithm as well.
So why should you enter? Over the past four years the imagine cup have grown to a massive event with lots of publicity, its a great thing to discuss in interviews, you can showoff your knowledge and plus its FUN! Oh and there is $25,000 plus other ‘money can’t buy benefits’ on offer for the winning team.
I’m sure you will be hearing a lot about this event shortly as MSPs will soon be promoting it around the various Universities.
