Their works and technologies contribute to the victims MSP Nepal (Microsoft Student Partner in Nepal) volunteering for earthquake victims after the big tremor felt in Nepal. Microsoft Innovation Center Nepal is now working with 150 volunteers to help earthquake victims. The volunteers were working in various affected areas and activities for helping the people through the technology.




MSP (Mahesh) providing free Skype calls to public

MSP Nepal were working in various affected areas, offering their mobile phones to victims so that they can make international call through Skype. In response to the destructive Richter 7.6 magnitude earthquake on April 25, Skype has opened up its landline and mobile calls to and from Nepal free of cost. With most people focusing on distributing relief materials like tent, food and medicine, this initiative comes as a surprising but welcome support for victims.

The volunteers have visited different places to provide this service, and people have been calling their family member and relatives to assure them that they are safe. These call have also been important because people were able to ask their relative for financial help.

Nepal free Skype calls2

One of the volunteers, Monalisha Dhimal, who visited the Swayambhu area, says the people were happy to be able to speak to their families. “The calls were to ask for financial help from family members, friends and to let them know they are fine. Many of them praised us for doing such a great job. I also helped people with their phone setting and made them aware about Skype calls,” added Monalisha. Starting from Saturday, May 2 they have reached out to almost 100 people to provide this work.

Hackathon Through The Year 2015

Many hackathon was held through FY2015. Check out our reports for exciting hackathon!

New Zealand


While most students were busy getting stuck into mid-term tests and finishing off assignments, the local MSPs were busy organizing events in and around the country. As September drew to a close, New Zealand’s MSPs organized and ran an intense, weekend long hackathon in 3 major cities around the country. Students learnt how to harness the power of the Raspberry Pi running Windows 10 and how to take full advantage of all the great tools on available to them.




MSP UWP Hackathon 19/09/2015 – 26/09/2015

One more time, MSPs across Vietnam had a chance to beat another Windows 10 competition together. The hackathon kicked off on September 19th, with the participation of 10 teams from Hanoi, Danang and Saigon. The theme was about “An app can improve productivity in workplace”. Moreover, all apps need to be developed on Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

“It is very challenging, I think most of us are new to Windows 10 and UWP, however, I am very excited to explore them and build something useful with my team” – said Thao Tran, a member of team Safari.

On September 26th, all teams gathered at Microsoft offices, packaged their application and prepared for the final pitch.


App Studio Hackathon

A lots of App Studio training session was hosted by MSPs. We also worked with Secondary school and High school to teach the student how to make App without code. After each training session, prize will be given to the most beautiful app created in the training time.




International Women’s Hackathon


MSP Japan conducted the International Women’s Hackathon on 10th October. Participants from different regions joined this year’s Hackathon.


Embedded IoT Hackathon

We participated in “Embedded IoT Hackathon” from November 18th, 2015 to November 20th at Pacifico Yokohama. We used technologies such as Windows10 IoT Core, Azure and Project Oxford.




In this hackathon, purpose is to think of solutions to solve the problem of two family houses that want to promote the independence of children. We competed with other participants in the demonstration and presentation and developed the device in three days using the built-in IoT technology.

Even Site


What we developed

We developed a stuffed toy type of device which makes children fun to help household.

The stuffed toy is able to speak the words by reading the NFC tag studded at home.

When the value of the acceleration sensor in the stuffed toy meets the conditions and changes, the toy speaks. Parents can set and change their words on the Web by using Project Oxford “Speech API”. It aims that children can continue to help without getting tired by changing the words on a daily basis that toy speaks.

Stuffed toy we developed

In addition, Web camera embedded in the stuffed animals will take a child’s face each time a stuffed toy reads the NFC tag. So that parents are able to check the children’s situation by utilizing Project Oxford “Emotion API”. The toy is implemented in Raspberry Pi equipped with Windows10 IoT core. It goes though the Azure for managing the NFC tag and confirming the status of children.

How the toy works


Improvements and future prospects

We learned two difficult points participating in hackathon though this event. First, It was hard to consider an effective solution for a given problem in a very short period. Second, it was difficult for us making a presentation within the time limit. Moreover, there were some points that we couldn’t explain clearly. Although we forced these problems, we want to continue developing web services using new technology.

Qualifying Trial for the Imagine Cup 2016 in Japan – The Biggest IT Contest for Students

On April 23, the qualifying trial for the Imagine Cup 2016 was held. 3 teams from each department (World Citizenship, Games, and Innovation) competed, so total of 9 teams gave their presentations to be the Japanese representative and win the tickets to the final round of the Imagine Cup 2016, which will be held in Seattle.
The winners were, for the department of World Citizenship, “SaNaVi” from the National Institute of Technology, Toba College; for the department of Innovation, “Bionic Scope” from the University of Tsukuba; and for the department of Games, “Senraku” from the Trident Computer College. Also, “Senraku” won the outstanding performance award as well as the audience award which was decided by telephone votes from the audience.

“Senraku” from the department of Games created a 2 vs 2 board game. Players must move rabbit like characters that can move left & right and up & down and try to surround the opponent with the path they moved. The path that these characters moved gets colored with their team color and the squares that was surrounded by the path falls off from the board. This rule explains the name “Senraku”, which is composed of two words “Sen”=line and “raku”=fall.
The game itself is simple; you just have to surround the opponent; and you move the character with the arrow keys. However, in order to win, you have to cooperate and create strategies with your teammate. The quality of the game is exceptional but the reason that “Senraku” won the department award and other awards, is also because of their presentation skills. The presentation thoroughly explained the features of the game, they spoke with clear voices, and really showed their teamwork.

The winner of the department of World Citizenship, “SaNavi”, is an app that alerts the pilot when a ship gets too close, to prevent ships from crashing into each other. In Japan, many marine accidents occur every year, especially because of lack of attention by the pilots of small vessels.
There are mainly 3 problems with the alert systems that are currently being used; most systems requires professional knowledge, high cost, and that small vessels aren’t required to install these alert systems by law. The app “SaNaVi” solves these problems. It can be downloaded on Smartphones and the UI is much simpler and straightforward. When there’s an abnormal movement of the ship, for example, when the pilot falls off the ship because of the crash and the ship goes out of control, “SaNaVi” can sense the movement and automatically notify the Japanese Coast Guard. In addition, with “SaNaVi” ability to record ship’s route, it can act as a drive recorder in case of accident and clarify who is responsible for it. The presentation included how the team exchanged opinions with the ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, the insurance companies, and electronic appliances makers. They also established business model for this app and it looked like a well-formulated service concept.

“Bionic Scope”, the winner from the department of Innovation, was a HMD (Head mount display) that can give us our vision the ability to zoom in and out. What is more impressive is how we control the devise. It detects myoelectricity signal of our face or the jaw, so for example, if you squint your eyes you can zoom in and if you clench your teeth you can zoom out. This device is world’s first HMD that has the function to zoom in and out, so this visual extension devise is currently applying for a patent.
In the future, “Bionic Scope” will be sold to people who benefits from this visual extension technology, for example, firefighters, hospitals, and other public agencies, people watching sport games, and to other corporations and early adopters. “Bionic Scope” can be used in our daily lives, as well as in special fields like health care, so we should keep our eyes on this brilliant piece of technology.
All the other teams that weren’t awarded also put a lot of thought into the problems that they face and worked hard to solve them. Teams that will go on to the Final round of the Imagine Cup in Seattle will be announced soon.

Hour of Code – Exellent Education Events of Programing

We MSP held “Hour of Code” and teached programing to children around the world!



On December 7th – 13th 2015 Malaysia had the honor of being the launch country to the third-annual Hour of Code in APAC.


With the theme “Code4Good” continuing the Company’s emphasis on inclusiveness, Microsoft Malaysia hosted Hour of Code events spanning 247 locations across Malaysia. The partnership with nonprofits and international schools, including outreach to underrepresented youths in the country, saw more than 25,000 children and youth participating in the Hour of Code.


In keeping with core of the Company’s mission to empower every person, Microsoft Malaysia took the Hour of Code to Henry Gurney Prison School, where over 150 of its inmates were shown how easy it was to code by over 20 Microsoft Student Partners, YouthSpark, comprising of undergraduates from across Malaysia along with employee volunteers, it was an amazing and humbling experience.


@University College of Technology

Week-long ‘Hour of Code’ didn’t just stop there! On December 14th 2015, the MSPs of University College of Technology Sarawak (UCTS) conducted an Hour of Code with Minecraft for over 50 students!


Part of the Computer Science Education Week, in this BYOD workshop the participants were exposed to a system which uses visual blocks that can drag and drop to write programs but under the hood they are creating JavaScript code to take Steve or Alex on an adventure through the Minecraft world.





Hour of Code is a non-profit organization initiated movement Code.org. In Indonesia movement titled “Hour of Code Indonesia” was held simultaneously worldwide on December 20 that started the circuit on Saturday, December 12, 2015. Hour of Code Indonesia was held in cooperation between some communities and companies such as Microsoft, Clevio, Ektizo etc.

Some MSP Indonesia also participated in the Hour of Code Indonesia as a trainer and co-Trainer, among others Richard Vinc, Alvin Julian, Moch Tri Dharmawan, Yudi Prastyo, Sangadji Prabowo, Hasyemi Rafsanjani, Ryannathan Setiawan, Davis Nur Iqbal, Ferry Afrizal, Yulita Ayu Regganis dll


 Hour of Code is aimed to introduce computer science to school children through a simple programming tutorial and brief. Obviously with learning coding, children can learn more to improve children access to technology


Hour of Code Indonesia introduced a web-based tool and it can be used to learn coding for the kids. The tool is Code Studio of Code.org. This web-based tool provides a diverse collection of tutorials packed like a game. Once children are familiar with Code Studio, they can continue to learn coding using Scracth. Similar tools are developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology.




On Dec 12th, 2014, one of the events for the Hour of Code by MSPs was carried out with 36 young students who ranged from 15 to 18 of ages at an all girls’ high school in Tokyo. In collaboration with Life is Tech!. Microsoft Japan provided the technologies and MSPs helped students write codes as a mentor. Through the event, students learned and developed the programming skills so fast to make an app on time and no one gave up, which made us surprised. From this experience, we now believe the importance for any learner, especially for beginners, to let them have easy access to the first steps with fun and excitement.



In  the celebration of the 2014  Computer Science Education Week (December 8-14), though Hour of Code is not a competition, the  Philippines  is one of the  top countries in the  Hour of Code Global Leaderboards  for having one of the highest participation rates in Hour of Code activities, with a total of  112 events  as of today, January 11, 2015.

Though some of the events were rescheduled due to impending Typhoon Hagupit, that didn’t stop the teams from accomplishing their goal of teaching K-12 students and others from non-tech colleges how to code.

With the cooperation of Microsoft Student Partners from Mae Fah Luang University and Chiang Mai University, MSP Thailand organized Microsoft Hour of Code: Northern Thailand workshop to provide Windows AppStudio training for high-school students in northern Thailand. This event gathered 100 students who joined the workshop to learn how to develop universal application on Windows platform.



The Hour of Code in Vietnam was held successfully after attracting about 200 secondary school students. Approximately, per session was attended by around 20 students. As an addition, this year saw the introduction of ‘App Studio’ which created interest among the participants.


Sway – The New Office Service

Microsoft has officially released new services through the trial period called “Sway” and “Docs.com” in August 2015. MSP talked to Miwa Nobuko, belonging in Office Development Department, who involved in the development of “Sway” and “Docs.com”.




Sway is a service for making document easily. The greatest feature is the auto layouts and design feature. Users can insert the text and photos into the Sway with a simple operation. They also can change all the style such as the background, font and placement in one time by using a design function. Since we don’t need to think about the layout, we are able to just focus on content. While collecting the information, it is completed as a form of distribution at the same time. This is the greatest characteristic of Sway.

Another feature of Sway is that designs are automatically adjusted for each device. When Sway documents made with PC smartphone are open in tablets, their photos, font size and layouts are changed quickly for fitting each display of devices.

A decade ago it took two or three years to release a product. However Sway can be improved its quality of service repeatedly with evaluation and correction in a short term after the release.




In Docs.com, you can upload the various materials made by Office such as the above-mentioned Sway on the web and easily publish. URL is given to the uploaded material to Docs.com and it will be able to easily share by sending this URL by e-mail. You can also add materials to your page with embed code. Page of Docs.com can collect in a Collection like curation and it can be managed in association. Moreover you don’t need to worry about losing Office feature by uploading to Docs.com because it uses latest technology of Office.

Education field is a potential user group of Docs.com, for example schools or universities. It increased efficiency to share articles and educational materials and leads to greater connection between teachers. We assume other potential users who have already published documents or presentation or who need to do something to the public in society.

There are still some opinions that people have a resistance to publish their own files to the world in Japan because this action does not fit the Japanese culture. However there are some people who actually publish documents for presentation or educational materials in Japan and Docs.com firstly targets to those people. For the people who are saying that there is no publish documents, you may have something to publish by changing their viewpoints. For example, some people put a collection of recipes made with Sway, others use as a place to publish a delicious restaurant collection. We believe that users utilize it as a field of knowledge in a variety of situations.


MSP members actually have used Sway and Docs.com. We were surprised with simplicity of its layout. It was possible to make HP very easily even for the members who did not know any Html. There is no stress to specify the animation, font size and image size one by one as PowerPoint. In other words, users are not able to reverse image size so that they can select the PowerPoint if stick to it.
Also we felt convenience of Doc.com. After working a personal computer in the house, we can continue to work again at school as long as the document is uploaded in Docs.com. Of course, it is easy to distribute materials and might be used as a blog. We also could see other users’ collections in Docs.com website. This is probably good example to get the idea how to use this service.



Exciting Workshops in Various Countries Part 2
