Microsoft imagine cup, a technology competition held annually since 2003 for students to solve the world’s toughest problems.
With each year seeing more applications and the competitive edge going even higher. This year will be no different.
Starting from the qualifiers, April the 15th saw students from different Universities in the country show case their applications at the French Cultural Centre .
In the very end, JKUAT students comprising a team of Collins Omwenga, Paul Mutie and Somboriot Kipchillat won the 2013 Microsoft Kenya Imagine Cup. The team developed an application named Protege, which aims to ease the process of giving donations to children’s homes and other charitable organisations across the world.
The app runs on Windows 8 and Windows phone backed up by Microsoft’s Cloud platform; Windows Azure.
Having won the 2013 Microsoft Kenya Imagine Cup, the trio will represent Kenya at the World Wide finals in St. Petersburg, Russia come July 2013.
Congrats and all the best to the team.
