  • Every student that participates will receive a free copy of the Windward development server (Java and .NET versions).

NOTES:

  1. Prizes awarded to winners outside of the U.S. are dependent upon U.S. government trade restrictions. We have questions in to the Department of Commerce but if they do not approve our providing prizes to participants in some countries (which would really suck), we can’t do it.
  2. Unfortunately we’re not set up to provide free food outside of North America so we can only provide free lunch to participants at participating schools in the U.S. & Canada.

Sponsors

  • JetBrains – IntelliJ and Resharper are go-to tools at Windward and we can’t imagine programming without them.
  • Hewlett Packard – HP offers a variety of graduate and interneship job opportunities. Click here to learn more.

NOTE: Unfortunately we’re not set up to provide free food outside of North America so we can only provide free lunch to participants at participating schools in the U.S. & Canada.
