Back in March, Frédéric (@fharper) introduced Code Your Art Out, a “wicked” coding competition, as described on the competition’s home page. Between March 1st and June 1st, any kind of web app could be submitted. Over the last week, the apps were judged on their interoperability with different technologies, creativity, and usability, and now I can announce the finalists! But before I do, just a reminder of what’s at stake for these finalists:
What did they have to do? The participants had to create any web solution and deploy it to either Windows Azure or IIS. Alternatively, they could port an existing web solution onto Windows Azure or IIS. That’s it. Everything else was left up to their creativity.
So with that, drum roll please…
On behalf of the Judges, we’d like to give a HUGE congratulations to the following finalists:
The competition was very tough, and deciding the top two was not easy, but it was a unanimous decision that Epilogger and Save The Rain shall battle it out for 1st and 2nd place on June 24th in downtown Toronto. The URLs for these apps will be shared after the 24th as well a recount of the finale event!
Look out for them because they are impressive, easy to use, unique and all around wicked. Congratulations and thanks to all of the teams who submitted apps for the competition. Everyone did a great job and should be very proud!
