Microsoft Imagine Cup
Microsoft Imagine Cup is the world’s premier student technology competition. It is an online free competition open to all.
Imagine Cup is your chance to break new ground, solve tough problems facing the world today, and maybe even turn your ideas into a business. Get involved in the next wave of games and applications – the future is in your hands.
All you have to do is to register first, and then make an original technology project on either of the three, World Citizenship, Innovation or Games, or participate in them all.
Come up with a unique idea, make a plan, build your own project and submit it to Imagine Cup website. You need to use Windows 8, Windows phone 8 or Windows Azure. There can be upto four members in a team.
You can win cash, grants, and prizes – plus, a chance for a free trip to Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. next July to compete at the Imagine Cup 2014 World Finals!
If you don’t have an interest in coding, you can participate in various global online challenges, none of these challenges require programming or are they required for the main competitions. Instead, they are to help you get started with the Software Development Life Cycle. First-place teams win $3,000 (USD).
There are several online quizzes which will keep you interested too.
