Two weeks ago, we held our Imagine Cup 2010 Awards Ceremony at Marina Bay Sands. The special guest of course, is none other than the CEO of Microsoft himself, Steve Ballmer.
The event was attended by over 600 academics and students from IHLs in Singapore, as they experienced a demo fest of Microsoft’s latest technologies, and witnessed the crowning of Singapore’s top software design team, Mama-Bear from Temasek Polytechnic, who will represent us in Poland come July.
Hosted by John Fernandes, the event also awarded Hu Zhengbin from Nanyang Polytechnic with the IT Challenge Award. Zhengbin is currently ranked top 3 in the world, and will slug it out in Poland to see how he ranks on the global stage. Three students also posed a variety of questions to Steve that ranged from questions on his ambitions as a teenager, our cloud computing strategy and some of the key learnings he has had as CEO. Steve had a great time interacting with the students and vice versa as they shared a couple of lighter moments during the award ceremony and Q&A.
Congratulations to Zhengbin and Mama-Bear, and a very big thanks to IDA and Nanyang Technological University for making Imagine Cup 2010 happen! See you guys next year!
