Become the Next ASEAN XML Superstar?

Do you have what it takes to be the next ASEAN XML Superstar? If you think so, I am inviting you to join the latest programming challenges sponsored by IDUG. This is really exciting and challenging for those student and professional programmers!

IDUG is sponsoring a contest for developers (students, professionals and hobbyists) to increase awareness and familiarity with XQuery, XML and DB2. Since each programmer has different skills and expertise, IDUG made the contest really fair and easy by providing us five different tracks and we'll just have to choose what track to enter. But if you think you can top all five tracks then you are also free to join the five. What are these five tracks of IDUG contest anyway? Well, the five tracks are:

Video Contest: Upload a video of yourself doing the XML, XQuery or DB2 programming!
Gadget Contest: Create a small widget or gadget still making use of XML and others.
XQuery Challenge: Just answer a series of questions by developing queries in XQuery.
Port an Application: Port an existing application to use XML, XQuery or DB2.
Develop an application: Develop a brand new application using XML and/or XQuery.

If you think you are an expert in one of these tracks, then, a lot of cool and awesome prizes are waiting for you! For more information about this, follow the link above and be the next ASEAN XML Superstar!
