On Feb 28th 2008, we held IIT Google Desktop Gadget Challenge – I, the very first Google Desktop Ambassador event at our institute (Informatics Institute of Technology, Sri Lanka).
The contest was a small warmup event for potential and new Google Desktop gadget developers at IIT. The main goal was to inspire and prepare students for the IIT Google Desktop Gadgets Contest, which we plan to announce by the middle of May.
Today we are really happy to announce the winner of the contest, Mr. Mohamed Shazin Sadakath, a part-time student at our institute. Check the Winners page of our local Google group for more information, and don't forget to check out his gadget, Hit Stations LK.
As a sign of appreciation for his contribution to Google Desktop, Shazin will receive a cool Google gift pack. Let's welcome this new gadget developer to the arena.
Thanks a lot to everyone who supported this event, and special thanks to the Google Desktop team for their continued guidance and support.
