Imagine Cup STC 2010 day 2


Imagine Cup 2011Back to the Student Technology Conference 2010 – second day – again I had a full schedule: attending web development session and after lunch the company startup coaching event. After a nice over-night sleep, I was full of energy to continue attending the presentations! You can read about the first day here.

First I went to the Axel Schulz’s presentation about Cloud computing, where he presented us the options that we have when using the Cloud system – Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS), Platform as a Service (PAAS) and Software as a Service (SAAS)

Next was Wolfgang Gallo’s presentation – “Web development”, which was a thoroughly nice overview of what web development was at its start and how it evolved – from editing with Notepad static HTML pages to ASP, AJAX, ASP .Net, MVC, WebMatrix and Razor syntax. Was an amazing history lesson!

After a delicious lunch and conversation, I joined the Coaching track, where Dr. Richard Geibel presented us the steps to create a powerful Business plan, allowing our application to get the full attention of the possible investors. We all had also the possibility to schedule a meeting with Dr.Geibel to ask particular questions, Was indeed a good thing, because I found out htat there are quite a few associations in Germany who have as a goal the help of young entrepreneurs. One of them is NUK – they have a 6 month- plan to put you in business!

After this, sadly, we had to head home – a very nice event was ended. I learnt a lot of new stuff, connected with my fellow Microsoft Student Partners and enjoyed a high quality event!
