In: PHP

25 May 2009

I recently heard about a funny contest handled by Microsft. The concept is really fun, and so is their web site (Check the video!).

Here is a short description of the contest.

Microsoft presents the Ultimate Battle: It’s a knock-down, drag-em-out battle between professional and student developers! And it’s your big chance to show the world your awe-inspiring PHP application – on the Windows-based platform! We’ll select one student and one professional coder for the Ultimate Throwdown – a final bout at the “Make Web, Not War” Conference! The winner can take home up to $10,000 in total prize money!Challenge a friend, invite a colleague, ask anyone – get the whole gang in on the Ultimate Throwdown Action.

 Last day to enter the contest is June 3rd. So hurry !
