If you've got the skilled manpower to prove your abilities then here is a contest for every technology challenged developer whether your are a student, a professional or a hobbyist. This IDUG contest is to increase awareness and familiarity with XQuery, XML and DB2 and the contestants can enter for five separate tracks for individuals of varying skill levels. You can enter one track or all five!

This competition consists of five different contests aimed at students and professionals alike. Each contest offers its own recognition and set of prizes. The range of skills encompasses those with a passing interest in XML and database technology to those with hardcore programming skills in DB2. Before participating, you will first need to take a Quick Quiz, a short questionnaire that requires no prior XML or database experience to complete. You only have to take the Quick Quiz once.

Video Contest: Invent a creative use of XML, XQuery or DB2 and record yourself doing it.
Gadget Contest: Develop a downloadable gadget or widget leveraging DB2.
Query Contest: Use XQuery to find five answers. The best queries win the best prizes!
Ported App Contest1: Port or develop a new app for DB2. Enter as an individual or assemble a team.
XML2 Contest: Win by building useful, user-friendly XML apps from scratch. Enter as an individual or assemble a team.

Earn participation points for each entry. A special prize will be given to the contestant—the “XML Grand Master”—that amasses the most participation points.
