Great Opportunities

I’ve already written about (#2064) what fantastic opportunities there are available to students entering the Imagine Cup this year.

The simple fact of the matter is that taking part in this competition gives you more opportunities than from taking part in any other student activity that I have ever come across.

What’s more, this year’s finals are being held in Poland, so if you make it through to that stage then you get even more great experiences out of the Imagine Cup. (Last year the finals were held in Cairo (#1211)).

Embedded Development

Are you ready to develop the technology of tomorrow? Then Embedded Development is for you.

Build an exciting and revolutionary solution to the world’s toughest problems with a combination of hardware, software, and Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2. Get stuck in to Embedded Development today, and get ready to change the world.

Game Design

Game Design is your opportunity to make a difference in a fun and engaging way!

Build a fantastic game with XNA Game Studio, Visual Studio or Silverlight. Target the latest platforms, including Windows 7 and the Xbox 360. Pour your creative talents into a revolutionary game and you could be on your way to Poland and thousands of pounds in prizes. Check out the Imagine Cup site for more on Game Design.
