Seven students competed in the Southwest Regional CCDC. The team included MBA students: Daniel Nall and David Naumann; and undergraduate students: Jonathan Loefler, Ralph Wright, Jacqulyn Perez, James Rizzuto, and Julian Martinez. While the team did not win, they did have fun and learned a lot.
SDEG — a team comprised of Cory Van Bibber and Suresh Sah, two BAAS students taking CIS courses; Jared Deer, an art major from San Antonio College; and Donald Wilcox from University of Texas at San Antonio — made it the US Imagine Cup finals. Microsoft flew the team along with their mentor, CIS Assistant Professor Barbara Hewitt, to Redmond, WA for the finals. While the team did not win, the weekend was spent presenting the project to the judges, touring Seattle, and showcasing their game on the Microsoft campus where they met many Microsoft employees as well as other IT professionals.
The team was also in the top 50 for the World Imagine Cup but did not make it to the finals!
