“Failures are the stepping-stones for success.”
Team Guids had advanced to the telephonic round of Imagine Cup India 2012 but couldn’t make it to the local finals, scheduled to be held on 25th April 2012, in New Delhi. This was a bit of sad news as the team was totally focussed on winning the local finals and making a big difference in the common man’s life. However, destiny had its own ways. And after a short break, Team Guids is back at what it loves doing. Nawaz Dhandala, chief architect of the project, shares a few words about the team, their principles and what is next.
“We’ve got courage to make our dreams come true. We’ve got courage to dream and to make those dreams possible.” are his first words on being enquired how does it feel to be out of the Imagine Cup 2012 race. Elaborating further, he says, “We’ve got courage to bind all of these technologies – Windows Azure, HTML 5, Silverlight into one single project and get that project as a product into the market. Imagine Cup is not about Who’s winning. It’s about how many of us can dream as wildest as we can to change the world and try hard to make them come true“. Heavy words indeed.
“We’ve also learnt to convert our ideas into project, Our projects into products and now the next step for us to turn the code We’ve written into a company. Imagine Cup is not THE END for us. It’s the new beginning. We’ll soon be launching Nutri Leaf on the Marketplace after we get the feedback from the Judges.” The next update for Nutri Leaf will be soon live on the marketplace which will actually sport many of the features described at the beginning of this blog. On the opportunities, Nawaz explains “The learing edge for us is to network with people to make this project possible, to learn how worker role, web and service roles and queues work together to make a solution possible and how to architect an app for the cloud, Its about managing resources we had in the right way to make this project possible.”
Going by the conversation, we can say that Team Guids is fired up of confidence in getting their product out in the market and help in making a difference. Thats the SPIRIT, boy!
They might be out of Imagine Cup 2012 but their journey doesn’t stop here. Support Team Guids as they gear up for the next Nutri Leaf update.
Support them in their efforts in contributing towards a healthier tomorrow.
