Imagine Cup 2008 Launch at University of Moratuwa

Yesterday 12th December we had a grand event at the university for the launch of the Imagine Cup 2008 competition. Event was organized by the Microsoft Student Champs community at the Faculty of Information Technology.

ic2008_1 Event was not only about the Imagine Cup, there was the launch of the sourceFEED - which is the new online resource center developed by student champs. SourceFEED was a long requested thing by the faculty students, it provided access to lot of online learning material and Microsoft latest software products that the faculty get through MSDNAA. Launch of the sourceFEED was done by the university vice chancellor.

After the launch of the sourceFEED we had the launch of the Imagine Cup 2008. This is the 4th time that IC is happening in Sri Lanka. During last 3 years the competition was won by students from FIT. This year also our students are ready to give a big challenge to other IT institutes around the county to bring the cup for the 4th consecutive time.

We had a introductory presentation about the IC 2008 by Wela, who is the Microsoft Developer Evangelist. And then we had 2 brief technical sessions on building WPF applications   and another one on Silvelight applications. I did the presentation on building WPF applications using VS2008 and Expression Blend. It was a very introductory session about WPF, XAML and Blend. You can view the presentation I did here in Google presentations. Wela did the presentation on Silverlight.
