Be the next XML Superstar!

I always wanted to be a computer programmer after I earned my degree course in Business Management. I sometimes got envied with those people who have good programming skills in DB2 and even in XML and database technology. If I do have those skills, I’d rather joined their competition in XML Challenge and be the next XML superstar.

It’s so simple…just register for one of the 5 different contests below aimed at students and professionals alike.

* Video Contest: Invent a creative use of XML, XQuery or DB2 and record yourself doing it.
* Gadget Contest: Develop a downloadable gadget or widget leveraging DB2.
* Query Contest: Use XQuery to find five answers. The best queries win the best prizes!
* Ported App Contest1: Port or develop a new app for DB2. Enter as an individual or assemble a team.
* XML2 Contest: Win by building useful, user-friendly XML apps from scratch. Enter as an individual or assemble a team.

But before participating, you will first need to take a Quick Quiz, a short questionnaire that requires no prior XML or database experience to complete. You only have to take the Quick Quiz once. Of course there will be great offers of recognition and set of prizes on each contest.

You might be the next XML Superstar so you better join now!
