Microsoft Sinegija 2008 - Novi Sad

I haven't blogged since September. There is a lot of things what I have to say (write).
So, at last week I was on the Microsoft Sinergija 2008 in Novi Sad. Motto of this year was: “Where IT all comes together.” :) The program was very interesting, and it contained presentations boot for users, and programmers. Performers on the last day:
Cluster team from Kragujevac – Serbia. They was last year in Egypt on the final competition of Imagine Cup. Their application (FEAT) is based on social platform (Facebook). With this application you can report ecological event in your environment. They made also a markup language, EcoML and a Facebook addon for reporting these events. You can see more pictures in my Picasa gallery about their presentation.

From Microsoft Sinergija 2008

SMOR team from Serbia. They win the Serbian final on Imagine Cup twice in a row. With their applications LightsON and DriveON. DriveON is a car/traffic simulator program.. Driving experience is close to the realty. They made it with 6 projectors, some DirectX, C# and other stuff. It was very impressive.

Project Gemini. Also from Serbia. Project Gemini is an addon for Microsoft Excel. The core of this application is the SharePoint. It is a big server with 1/2TB memory, with a hundreds of processors for servicing users. Once if the user is connected to this SharePoint he can download a huge sized databases within a 4-5 seconds. They are using very extreme and fast compression. I never saw this before. On a laptop they are retrieved one table from some database with rows within these 4-5 seconds. Yeah, It sounds impossible. :)
After these great presentations we have some dinner down in the Hall, ...and I've got a Microsoft badge yey! :)
