The Microsoft Image Cup 2015 will take place in Seattle USA, in late July (more information here). This student’s competition has added interesting challenges over the years. One of my favorite ones is the “World Citizenship” challenge and the “Project Blueprint Challenge” which I had the honor to server as a Judge, so I had a first hand view of 11 projects. This competition is about pitching an idea before getting the hands dirty in coding.

I really enjoy this initiative because I was a participant when I was in college and then I became a mentor during the early years of my career. Have a look at the web site and spread the word.

Cheers,
