Hungary (Zoltan Szabo & Balazs Lajer from University of Pannonia) won, by a hair ahead of Germany. Congratulations to all the students and professors involved. [From Ricoh and Java Developer Challenge – Octavian Tanase’s Weblog]
Congratulations to my students, Markus Weber and Volker Hudlet, who had participated in this year’s Ricoh & Java Developer challenge. After having won the national competition, being awarded second place in the international competition is quite an accomplishment.
Markus and Volker developed a prototypical recommender system based on context-aware service discovery using case-based reasoning methods for a Ricoh multi-functional product (MFP). They successfully combined the open-source tool myCBR and the jColibri framework. They were co-supervised by my colleague Heiko Maus and me.
