Imagine Cup 2009

Yesterday my campus (Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia) was visited by a representative from Microsoft Indonesia, and 2 MSPs (Microsoft Student Partner) from UGM. What's the occasion of their coming to my campus? Other than to introduce MSDNAA (Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance), it's to publicize a competition which had been conducted by Microsoft for several years. Imagine Cup 2009 is the name of that competition. The world's premier student technology competition, is how Microsoft would describe this event.
