9 July 2011, Marriot Marquis Hotel; New-York (USA). Logbook of the Protuts team, a member of the Microsoft Student Partners Social Media Team.
Throughout the day of July 9 (local time), participants from the Embedded Development, Software Design, and Windows Phone 7 categories presented their projects for 25 minutes to a panel of judges, followed for 10 minutes by a series of questions and answers.
When at Jean Sébastien Duchêne, he started the IT Challenge for 24 hours non-stop work! Rest assured, he has the right to sleep.

And it is around 23:00 (local time) that the qualified for round 2 in the categories Embarked Development and Software design have been announced. Give me 4 has been selected for his LinkTV project! Unfortunately, the Dream'n touch team with their EbakPak project was not selected. It’s the tough law of competition.
Congratulations to all, no matter what the result!
When in the Windows Phone 7 and IT Challenge category, the results will be known very soon: of course, we wish the French a good luck!
See you tomorrow for the rest of the Imagine Cup 2011 — New York on Protuts!
