Imagine Cup 2010 to be hosted in Poland.


Well this news is bit old. I had read the news article at a quite a while ago but missed out the statement. “Yesterday in Warsaw, Poland, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that the Imagine Cup 2010 Finals will take place in Poland, a country with a track record of producing highly skilled IT students as well as successful Imagine Cup entrants.”

And it seems Microsoft might have tightened the Agenda for the world final from 3rd-9th to 3rd-7th of July. (Financial crisis?). smile_confused Brrr That leaves out my opportunity have few extra leaves from the working place.
