Imagine Cup: Team UK

Download

Right click “Save as…”

I recently caught up with the Imagine Cup finalists from the UK. They have built a very interesting application built on top of .NET 2.0 technologies that will help people suffering from amnesia or coming out of a coma. How? Well, watch (or listen) to the video and find out.

Learn what the Imagine Cup is by clicking here.

Stay tuned for more Imagine Cup coverage on C9 in the near future (I recently attended the Imagine Cup Finalists Show-Off event here in Redmond where Bill Gates went around to each team to learn first hand what they've made. He was very impressed....)

    This is extremely refreshing to see young developers writing applications for a purpose more useful than modding the local copy of Halo2.

    I'm currently trying to get my younger brother-in-law into development, to add some direction to his life before it completely spins out of control Smiley

    Kudos, boys!
  • Very cool. Will you be posting the videos of all the teams live demos?
  • I know these three as I also go to university (just completed my degree in Computer Science with Business Information Engineering). They're all very intelligent guys and I hope they win the competition.

    Andy took a year out to work at Microsoft, they've all been or are Microsoft Student Partners and James won a prize for academic excellence in the Computer Science department twice.
  • Well done guys, you've done a great job and this looks like a fantastic application.  I hope you do well in the competition with it!Smiley
  • I met these guys at Hull University also through the .NET MSc and I know how hard they have worked on their application.

    I wish them all the success in the world, they definately deserve to win!

    Best of luck guys!

  • Imagine Cup Rullllllllzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
  • Thanks guys!

    Was worried that we were a bit nervous to begin with.Smiley

    Funny that you mention about taking on projects, i think most geek type people i know always have some random project on the go even if it's just to play with some new technology. The imagine cup can be great for that as it gives it some structure and the odd frebie Smiley but more over makes you actually wanna finish the project!

    If any of you are interested we have a blog kinda thing over on The Reg Developer which we try to post too.


    <Andy the guy with the disturbing grin>

  • The guys there looks pretty much similar hard workers on those application that they wanna win ????? hmm presenting to the Bill Demo that's fine hard work needs to be done before presenting the demo version, Again nice work I wish them best of all.......
