Is there an interactive application or a game buzzing in your mind that you want to develop but somehow not motivated enough to get it started? Here’s a big push – recognition, rewards and respect!
Since Oracle Corporation becomes the steward of Java, this is the first time that the company, through its education initiative Oracle Academy, holds a national competition in the Philippines, and the first in Southeast Asia, too.
Dubbed as Oracle Academy Philippines Java Programming Competition, the contest provides a venue where you get a competitive boost of creative experience in showcasing your skills in Java.
The competition also gives you an arena of exploring the limits of your imagination to pursue innovation as you take Java to the edge. Moreover, it is good exposure to the competitive nature of the real world while applying the hours and hours of training, coaching, coding and programming that you have already done as a hobby or in school.
If you are enrolled in a degree or diploma program at an accredited, non-profit college, university, or vocational institution in the Philippines and have reached the age of majority (18 years or above), competing here is one experience that can add flavor to your resume and not to mention worth mentioning in your job interview.
Another good thing too, there are no fees required to join. For those who have already started their summer activities, registration and entry submission can be done done virtually anywhere through this link: https://academy.oracle.com/competition.
There will be three winners and each member of the winning teams will receive:
- 1st place: Laptop $1,450 USD approximate retail value
- 2nd place: Laptop $1,150 USD approximate retail value
- 3rd place: Laptop $950 USD approximate retail value
Participants have until April 26th, 12 noon, to register online at https://academy.oracle.com/competition and may use the available resources on the site to get started.
Announcement of winners is on June 4, 2013.
