30 to Launch Azure Challenge

May 3rd, May 17th & May 23rd


During the month of May, Microsoft is throwing down an Azure app challenge at Seed Philly! Join us over 4 weeks in May to build your Azure app!


Location: Seed Philly, 1650 Arch Street, Suite 1906

Dates: Thursday 5/3, Thursday 5/17, Wednesday 5/23

Presented By: Microsoft

      Meet your host: Brian Johnson Senior Developer Evangelist




Why should you care?

You’ll learn how to develop applications for Windows Azure and you could go home with an XBOX 360+Kinect Bundle!


What are the details?

We will be hosting three sessions in the 30 days. As you learn, develop a new application prototype and a 2 minute presentation about your app, describing the architecture and why Azure works well for your application.  At the last session, pitch your app to the class and the best pitch (audience judged) gets an XBOX 360+Kinect 250GB Bundle!
