Hey guys, have you heard of an xml contest? What is that kind of contest and what are the prizes? What is that all about? Well, this contest consists of 5 different contests, which are aimed at students and professionals alike...Hmm, sound like fun and more practical, don't you think so? Each type of the contest offers its own recognition and set of prizes and the range of skills encompasses those whose interest in XML and database technology are merely passing, to those with hardcore programming skills in DB2. So this contest is more like a "battle of skills"...Now, before one can participate, he or she, will first need to take a "Quick Quiz", which is a short questionnaire that requires no prior XML or database experience to complete. Now this initial step should only be taken once.

To start now, one has to register for any of the following contests:

1.) Video Contest: The goal is to invent a creative use of XML, XQuery or DB2 and record yourself doing it. 2.) Gadget Contest: The task is to develop a downloadable gadget or widget leveraging DB2. 3.) Query Contest: The task is to use XQuery to find five answers. The best queries win the best prizes! Isn't that fabulous? Ahaha...I would like to try this one... 4.) Ported App Contest1: The goals is to port or develop a new app for DB2. Enter as an individual or assemble a team. So go ahead and contact all the geniuses in your clan...and of course, last but not the least, 5.) XML2 Contest: Goal is to win by building useful, user-friendly XML apps from scratch. Enter as an individual or assemble a team. Again, gather up all your genius buddies and join...

Weeeh, I want to join this contest...
