IT HERO3S Solutions Challenge

The IT HERO3S CHALLENGE is a Solutions Development Challenge for Developers and IT Professionals in the Philippines. The aim of the contest is to provide a solution for an actual NEED by any of the participating NGOs. Unfortunately, the deadline for submission of entries was two days ago (January 15, 2008).

Too bad I didn’t have enough MS knowledge to provide a sound plan in such a short timespan. I hope this event pops up again next year, when I think I should be more armed and ready.
