Things I Like..

Microsoft Professional Developers Conference ; Amazon / Microsoft Developer Contest

I am in Los Angeles for the Microsoft Professional Developers Conferenc e. After the keynote, I have booth duty on and off all day. If you are at the PDC, please feel free to stop by the Amazon kiosk and say hello. We are in Booth #907, adjacent to the Windows Vista Test Drive.

In conjunction with the PDC, Amazon and Microsoft are jointly announcing and sponsoring a developer contest with a grand prize of $5,000 and plenty of others as well. Entrants must use the Amazon Web Services and Visual Studio 2005 to build their entry.

We hopeto get lots of entrants, so please feel free to spread this information far and wide!

You can also watch my Channel 9 video to learn more about AWS and the contest.
