    MADExpo Additional Thanks

    I realized this evening that in my MADExpo wrap-up post, I left out some pretty critical players. For those of you who aren't aware, the team I work on at Microsoft is unusual, in that I and my fellow Developer Evangelists do not work in Redmond, nor do we all work in an office together.

    HTML5 Web Camps Coming to Mid-Atlantic (and elsewhere)

    Two Web Camp events covering HTML5 and related technologies are coming to Mid-Atlantic (as well as other locations on the east coast). We'll be in Chevy Chase, MD and Malvern, PA in late August. And although the events are more than a month away, you don't want to wait to register, as these events are already well on their way to selling out (in fact, the first event in Farmington, CT is already at capacity). more

    You've got less than a week to enter the Rock Paper Azure Grand Tournament…would love to see one of my readers from Mid-Atlantic win the $5000 grand prize…doesn't take long to enter, and imagine what you could do with that kind of money! WIN THE GRAND TOURNAMENT and take home $5,000! Announcing the Rock Paper Azure Challenge International Grand Tournament July 13, 2011 Will your bot have what it takes to crush the coding competition? Play and find out! The Rock Paper Azure Challenge puts a modern twist to this classic game: instead of manually throwing rock, paper or scissors, you code a bot to do it on your behalf. Each bot battles all the other contest bots, and just to keep it interesting there are two additional moves: Dynamite and Water Balloon. Code and upload your bot by July 13th to test your coding skills against players from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Sweden, China, Germany and New Zealand. The winner of the Rock Paper Azure Challenge Grand Tournament will take home a cool $5,000. more
