RAF Challenge – for the last time!

Do you remember what RAF Challenge competition actually is? Here goes a quick remainder!

RAF Challenge is an IT competition organized by School of Computing (RAF) from Belgrade. Competition is separated in two categories. The first category requires developing an application or creating a presentation on a given topic. If you wish to compete in the second category, you are supposed to develop a game for the Windows platform.

Anyone who is the student of a secondary school can participate, therefore considering that I’m on the last school year of my secondary school, this is the very last time I will compete.

A flashback…

RAF Challenge 2012

– The very first IT competition I attended and my work was LottoGame2.0. I managed to reach the finals (top10).

RAF Challenge 2013

– This time I’d decided to compete in the first category and created CloudComputing application. And won the 3rd place after reaching the finals.

RAF Challenge 2014

As I said to this cat full of curiosity ( we all know what happened to a similar cat), I will compete in the first category once again. The topic is “The robots of the future” and I will publish the application after the New Year, so see you then!

Recently, I’ve bought the Wacom Intuos Manga graphics tablet and since then I’ve been following ‘Digital Art for Beginners’ session by Martin Perhiniak at PSDTuts and here’s my first drawing with shadows 😀

The enclosing Business Challenge for 2013! [review and useful tips]

Business challenge – the national finals!

Just a quick info before we dive into the review: there are four Business Challenges in Serbia and they are located in Novi Sad, Belgrade, Nis and Cacak. The first 3 teams from each town qualify for the national finals in Belgrade.

The first day

The people who formed my team this time were Anđela, Đorđe and Jovan (greetings for them :D).

Establishing the good communication within the team is crucial, hence the team building activities were oriented towards an early-competition cooperation test, before the real thing. At the very beginning we were given a task to design a logo of our team, using several colorful papers and a sticky tape, in 20 minutes.

Đorđe’s professor, Nikola Petrović, was around and he advised us that a good way to start is:

Start from something that you all love in common.

Soon we realized that we are all sort of related to sports. However, a very interesting fact was that we love four absolutely different sports! Đorđe’s Europe vice-champ in karate, Anđela used to train volleyball, Jovan’s student company produces boomerangs and I am very much into working out.

The first Alumni conference in Serbia [review & impressions]

Got back home with a bagful of experience…

…is my overall impression of the very first Alumni conference in Serbia by Alumnize.RS and Junior Achievement!Conference

The idea was to assemble the people who have been a part of the JA programs in Serbia in order to depict the Alumni program and share useful and inspiring entrepreneurship advice with them.

The first conference day

This was rather a day for introducing the different programs, and so Junior Achievement team and Alumnize.rs gave us a closer look to their plans and organization and we’ve heard a quite interesting story about how Alumni idea started as well….
