Do you want to be a XML Grand Master? You may have the XML skills, and with the title of XML Grand Master, it will boost your record even further. The first step is to get involved in the The XML Challenge sponsored by IDUG.

The XML Challenge is a competition consisting of five different contests. You need not worry if you are a student or having less XML skills than others, since there is always a contest, in varying levels of skills, that may fit you. The range of skills encompasses those with a passing interest in XML and database technology to those with hardcore programming skills in DB2. You may choose from any of the following (or maybe all, if you desire):

* Video Contest: Invent a creative use of XML, XQuery or DB2 and record yourself doing it.
* Gadget Contest: Develop a downloadable gadget or widget leveraging DB2.
* Query Contest: Use XQuery to find five answers. The best queries win the best prizes!
* Ported App Contest1: Port or develop a new app for DB2. Enter as an individual or assemble a team.
* XML2 Contest: Win by building useful, user-friendly XML apps from scratch. Enter as an individual or assemble a team.

You will earn participation points for each entry. A special prize will be given to the contestant —- the "XML Grand Master" —- that collects the most participation points.

Are you ready to face the IDUG contest and test your XML skills?
