Last friday my team participated in the Nordic Imagine Cup Software Design final in Oslo. We competed againts a Finish and a Danish team. And we won! The Danish team got second place and the Finish team third place. The first price was a Qtek SmartPhone. Both the first and second place go to the worldwide finals in India, and all teams got a nice SQL Server 2005-jacket
The days before the final were quite busy. We worked quite a bit on our presentation and on the demo we were going to show. The last night before the final we got some serious issues with a reluctant SmartPhone, so we stayed up almost all night, until 7 to get it working. Then it was a coulpe of hours of sleep and then straigt out to IT-Fornebu and Accenture's offices for the final.
Our team, "Team NTNU", consists of:Jan-Kristian Markiewicz (http://thespoke.net/blogs/prismejon/default.aspx)Gøran Hansen (http://goeran.greit.no)Jonas Follesø (http://jonas.follesoe.no)Hans Olav Norheim (me)
