Welcome to the Training for the Imagine Cup Competition!

Microsoft believes the next great thing could come from anyone, at any time. Now in its 20th year with nearly 2 million past competitors worldwide, Imagine Cup is Microsoft’s global technology and innovation competition for students. With the goal of empowering every student on the planet to achieve more, young developers are invited to submit their original technology solutions utilizing Microsoft Azure for a chance to win cash, prizes, mentoring and more.
