Imagine Cup

"Imagine a world where technology enables a more sustainable environment for all"

This is the slogan for this years Imagine Cup and with the enviroment being a key buzzword at the moment what better than to hold an event focusing on how we as developers can help create a better enviroment.

Check out the latest blog post on Mint Source to learn more about the imagine cup. One of the prizes which I am really stoked about is the opportunity to go to Redmond and follow the Popfly group.

Also if your up for a challange and want your university to be known as the best take the online quiz. Come on MMU!!

The Inspiration Tour will be heading back to MMU in the new year to re-do the event which suffered from technical difficulties last time round.

The new date for the event is

This will be in the John Dolton building so easy enough for all computing students to get to.

Inspiration Tour??

The Inspiration Tour kicked off today and where better to start it than right here in Manchester! However after some major technical difficulties the event started to look gloomy. Ed and Ben encoundted technical problem with the projector and were only able to use the project for about 15 minutes, which left the rest of the event being presented without any demos or slides.

However all is not bad news, we have been asured that the Inspiration Tour will return to Manchester and give a fully fledged event. Possibly starting and ending the tour Manchester.
