Microsoft Code2Fame Challenge: Over $50,000 in prizes
« on: June 16, 2007, 09:34:10 AM »
Create killer add-ins. Win fame and fortune.
How does industry-wide exposure and cold, hard cash sound? You could win both if you're one of the extraordinary coders who can create the best software and hardware add-ins for the new, soon-to-be-released Windows Home Server.

The challenge
Create cool software and/or hardware add-ins for Windows Home Server, to simplify the digital lifestyles of families everywhere—or just to geek out.

We are looking for creative use of a server as a platform, as well as useful, cool, easy-to-use, and solidly performing value-adds to Windows Home Server.

The prizes

Over $50,000 in cash prizes.

An all-expenses-paid trip for finalists to Microsoft headquarters in Redmond to "wow" the judging committee with their demos.

Your solution will be highlighted on one of the most visited Web sites in the world: Microsoft.com.

Top contenders will present their add-in to a judges' panel of select media and analysts.

Your add-in will be featured on the Windows Home Server developers blog.

You'll get bragging rights! (After all, these add-ins can change the way people live.)

Finalist prizes (for each add-in category):
1st place: US$10,000 cash value
2nd place: US$5,000 cash value
3rd place: US$1,000 cash value

The top three finalists in each category (software add-ins and hardware add-ins) will be notified by e-mail or phone between September 17-19, 2007.

The top three finalists in each category will be invited to Microsoft headquarters in Redmond between September 24-28, 2007, to "wow" the judging committee with their demo.
