Microsoft/Amazon Developer Contest
Microsot and Amazon have teamed up to offer a $5,000 prize for the best application built with Visual Studio 2005 and Amazon Web Services. The criteria are:
- Creativity of Application
The uniqueness of the idea or implementation.
- AWS Service Integration
The quality and extent to which the AWS services are integrated into the application as a whole.
- Commercial Appeal
The consumer or business value represented in the application, e.g., is there market appeal for the application?
- Fit and Polish
How good is the look and feel? How stable and robust is the application?
If you haven’t worked with Amazon’s web services you should take a peek; there’s a bit of a learning curve up front, but their power is astounding.
