Gerne möchte ich hier auf einen Entwicklerwettbewerb hinweisen, der auf einen Guten Zweck abzielt:
Damit ich jetzt nicht alles übersetzen muss, hier die Original-Ankündigung:
Microsoft Office 2007 - Inspiration
We've just launched a very cool contest called Develop without Borders that challenges developers around the world to design Microsoft Office business applications supporting non-profit organizations. It was developed as a joint effort with support from HP and offers over $150,000 in prizes.
The concept is simple: Developers choose a charitable organization that they would like to help, come to understand the business challenges that it faces, and propose a solution based on the Office 2007 system that addresses one or more of those challenges. Solutions that make the most impact on the organization and that best utilize the Office system technologies can win up to $50,000 to help pilot or implement the solution. (Of course, MS employees are not eligible to compete.
This combination of education and doing something positive for the world is an exciting approach - check out the site or contact the admin with questions about the contest.
