Conducting Second & Third Phase Evaluation For Microsoft Imagine Cup Software Design Competition 2006

29th May 2006:
I have been really busy so wasn't able to update my blog there have been 2 main event regarding Imagine cup. The final 2 rounds were held at IBA and the selected entries from previous round were competing in it. The judges panel included Waqar Khamisani (Microsoft ISV Manager Pakistan), Dr. Saeed Ghani (Chairman CS and MIS, IBA),
Dr. Shahid Shameem, Dr. Amir Raza, Rehan Ghayor (Sr. Manager MIS, IBA), Talha Mahmood and My self. In the 2nd round there were 5 projects and after going through the demos and the Presentation we were hardly able to separate the top 2. So we decided to go to the third round with only 2 projects.

6th June 2006:
Final round was held to select 1 project from the top 2. Again both the projects were very impressive and had made some improvements in the last week to brighten their chances. Eventually after a long debate and demo/presentation 1 was selected to represent Pakistan in Imagine cup 2006.
