  • @Sunil - I signed up for TGMC-06, but due to exams during that I didn't get much time to start the project, also i had to learn Java to create the projects, so it would have consumed a lotof my time . So i just skipped it.

    All you need to take part is you should have a team of max 4 members, and a tutor from your college. You should sign it online.The tutor should have an tutor account in ibm.com, i think most of the teachers in your college will have it. Just select a tutor of your choice, and a project of your choice, find a team of max 4 members, not compulsory, and signup the online registration form. Nothing else required.

  • @Sunil, your college has to be a member of the IBM Academic Initaitive. If it is not, no problems, you can request one of your lecturers to sign up for the membership. As Harshil has alredy pointed out, maximum team size can be of 4 people. You also have to think of a name for your team. IBM will provide a set of scenarios which you can choose from. If you want to work on your own project then you have to send them the project details (including the SRS) for approval.

    The entire contest will be in phases. In the initial phase you have to send them the SRS of the project along with other details. You have to ise IBM middleware like DB2(Database), Eclispe (IDE), Rational etc for developing your project. You will then have to send the code file and finally the documentation with UML diagrams.

    Hope this answers our question.

     

    Even i am a complete novice in Java, so i suggest we use this thread to help each other when we are stuck in problems. What do you think?

  • They have nearly 20 project sceanrios. You need to code in Java, and use IBM middleware. For a list of the projects visit https://www.tgmc.in/secure/project_scenarios.php

    Since you already know SQL, it will be helpful in using IBM's databse DB2.
