As part of its efforts to encourage development of IT applications in Indian languages, software major Microsoft Corporation India has launched 'Indic Developer Challenge', a nation wide contest aimed at budding local language developers in engineering colleges.
The company has decided to hunt local talent at engineering colleges and provide them necessary technical support for development of applications with interface in any Indian languages.
As a first step of this contest, Microsoft has reached out to the students directly through technical festivals at the IITs in Delhi and Mumbai and other prestigious institutions, to create awareness about the contest.
