I won a Silverlight competition

I am very glad to announce that yesterday, 4th of August, I stood first in a silverlight competition held at Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology. In the 8 hour competition, the participants were asked to make a custom control “Drag and Drop Shopping Cart” in Silverlight 2 Beta 2. Here were the prizes I got:

  • MSDN Premium Subscription for 1 Year (Total Market Value: $10, 939)
  • 10,000 Rupees cash

It was a very wonderful experience. You can download my code here. Be sure to rename the file as a zip for extraction.

Victory in Softec 2005

We got 3rd position in All Asia Dynamic Programming Competition. My other two team members were Faisal and Usman. We were first upset to know that C# was not allowed, then we starting coding in VC++ and yeah, we were able to beat 50+ teams in a tough competition of 5 hours.


I went for PROCOM with two of my fellows, Usman and Faisal. On the first day, there were two trial sessions. We stood 8th in the very first session but then we gathered our distributed skills and yeah, we stood 1st in the 2nd trial session. On the second day, there was only one session of 3 hours. All the participating teams including us could solve only 3 problems out of given 6. We were the first one to solve those 3 problems but Ah…. Some penalty points kept us far from first 3 rankings. We were not much upset and InshaAllah we’ll make a remarkable victory in the upcoming Softec Competition in Lahore.
