Andrew Grapsas is a student at Stevens Institute of Technology who is putting together a team to compete in the game creation invitational of the Imagine Cup competition. Andrew has started blogging about his team and their efforts.
The Imagine Cup is a huge international competition among college and university students all over the world. The winners from various countries will compete in the international finals in Paris this spring. Plus of course there is cash money involved. But even better is the exposure that winners get to leading venture capitalists and potential employers. It can be a huge resume booster.
Even were that not the case I think the team work and team building aspects make the software design invitational a worthwhile effort. Those are in fact the things that Andrew is blogging about already. Take a look at his blog here.
I'm looking forward to his insider's view of the event.
