  • @Vandana,

    i dont think , there will much of a dire consequence in terms of points or something, but if you have completed the website say 3/4, then i think it makes sense to upload it and let people at least see the effort and the fact shows that we tried.

    What say?

  • I think noone received the confirmation about the registration for the LightUpYourCOllege contest, except for the fact that we have got 200 points for registering in it.

    The site says that we will get confirmation and links to download softwares, that we can work on it and create the website. But i think we all ahve to start doing the work, as at the end there wont be much time left; ) Better to finish it early than late.

  • I have not received the confirmation, but lets wait for another week. Maybe there are some instructions involved. After then we can start designing the website. After all we dont want to do redundant work right?

  • I don't know you all others but what i can say is Visual Web Developer is not  a cakewalk as you might be dreaming about it also you got to have one page designed using Silverlight technology and Frankly speaking getting books and other resourses for using Silverlight is a tough job as it is a new technology untill and unless Microsoft provides us with some of them

  • Yeah....i guess better to upload whatever we've done instead of uploading nothing at all...!!! And anyone knows where we can get an idea about silverlight...?? I do hope MS sould have some material...!!

    Hello friends i started my dream website.


    i think there is no enough time but u have to start today itself, because it is very important that your site's look is attractive and also the coding is too much fine as compair to other members


    so start your website today itself,


    best of luck to all.


    if u have any query than send me reply i will give answer.


    thank u,

  • Hey guys, we HAVE to have atleast one page done using Silveright. And i guess thats what is the motive of MS, they want us to learn and get familiar with the latest technologies. and that is really a good sign.

    Silverlight LInk : http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/
    As yu can see the slogan of SiverLight = Light up The Web, and our contest name is Light up your college Stick out tongue seems similar Smile so SilverLight, should be used.

  • Wat i wanted to ask is that, when we are designing our "dream website", do all the details regarding the institute have to be perfect??....... Cause since, basically the aim is to make us develop a Professional Real World Website and not for the purpose of using the website for the college, I don't think the details have to be perfect. Because if it has to be that way, we'd have to waste time gathering the factuals related to the college rather than designing the site.

  • Thanks Ranjeeth,

    Admin work in under prcoess of sending details,

    but should we start our work?  because No guidelines no information except that we have to make website using next web technology and we have to submit it before 3rd december.
    I think there must be some more rules set of guidelines for our project in the URL/Login we will receive. we can't ingnore that rules/giude lines.
    over all admin will extend the deadline of submission?  also most of the students will give their semester exam in december.
