Trip to Warsaw : The Final & The Result

The World Festival, or we can say that the announcement party was held on July 8 2010. It was held at the Opera House, claimed as the biggest opera place in Eastern Europe. All the finalist have tried their best. And, Indonesia still had representatives, Chandradimuka Team from IT Telkom in Interop Award and SiMantri from UI in Envisioning Award. I learned a lot from all the finalist, their ideas, the solutions, the future plan of the business opportunity of the software. It was great. Inspiring. Sometimes, shocking!!!!

In the end, we could still be proud, because Merah Putih were on the stage. Chandradimuka got 3rd winner of the award, behind Brazil and Jamaica. And they announced that the next year worldwide final will be held in New York, USA.
