So you need an excuse to code?

Published by at 1:53 pm under Uncategorized

The Windows product group has launched a contest to get people  started with coding Windows. There will be several winners from around the world and everyone who submits something by 8/15/2009 will be eligible to win a $1000 gift card.

There are 7 guiding principles that the submitted applications need to address:

  • Simplify My Life
  • More Media, More Places
  • Gaming
  • Work from Anywhere
  • Safeguard Your Work
  • Applications for a Better Tomorrow

All entries should take advantage of one or more of the following technologies:

  • Libraries
  • Windows Touch
  • Shell Integration
  • DirectX 11
  • Sensor and Location Platform

Check out the site for all the rules The Code7 Contest.

So go! I would suggest you get the Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4 Beta 1 as there are some new Namespaces to help with new Windows 7 features.

I almost forgot you could get a free trip to the PDC

Good luck!
