Software Design Rules
The Software Design competition challenges students to explore their own creativity by using technology to solve what they consider to be the toughest problems facing the world today. The Imagine Cup provides the incentive, but the competitors provide the genius behind innovative, dynamic, and powerful software applications. Using Microsoft tools and technology, competitors can unleash their ideas and technical talent to create cutting edge software applications. Students will develop, test, and build their ideas into applications that can change the world.
In order to help you to better understand this year’s theme – “Imagine a world where
technology helps solve the toughest problems” – we recommend familiarizing yourselves with the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals (“MDGs”). The MDGs identify some of the toughest challenges in the world today. Learn more about the 2011 Theme.
