Therap has been actively helping BASIS (Bangladesh Association of Software & Information Services) in their “Code Warriors’ Challenge” project. Atiq, Nazrul and I are judges and problem setters in the Java Track of the Challenge. Atiq has been doing a fantastic job of co-ordinating our activities with BASIS. He will also be a judge in the final round of the challenge. Nazrul has setup a beautiful scenario showcasing how e-Governance can help the country face the challenges of the 21st century. It also aligns with the “Digital Bangladesh” vision of the government.
The challenge had three rounds. The first round was an MCQ test to shorten the list of candidates for the challenge. The 2nd round was a simplified real life project. The 3rd and final round will be on the 4th of February. It’s a day long program within SoftExpo 2011. Contestants would have to implement simplified services for he e-Governance showcase.
