Imagine Cup winners announced, Australian Team SOAK takes home the gold

Courtesy Liveside.net:

Today marks the end of the 2008 Imagine Cup.  The winners were just announced at an awards ceremony at the famous Musée du Louvre in Paris.  I am happy to report that Team SOAK, which includes our good friend, Long Zheng, along with teammates David Burela, Dimaz Pramudya, and Ed Hooper, took first place in the Software Design category.  This is a very tough competition, which had around 200,000 entries, so this is a huge achievement.

Six of the teams, including SOAK, will also have the chance to participate in Imagine Cup Innovation Accelerator program, where they will be given help, by Microsoft, to try and turn their idea into a commercial success.  Additionally, congrats to Spain’s Windows Drive (CarlosJunquera Cachero, David Rodriguez, Héctor Juan and Miguel Llopis) who took home the Windows Live Achievement Award.

The full list of winners can be found here and the first place teams are listed below.  Great job to everyone who participated.  We definitely have a lot of really smart people leading us into the next generation of tech.
