A new worldwide contest for developers has been launched by the folks at Visual Studio Express and SQL Server Express.
Here's how it goes: you think of something cool using Visual Studio Express and SQL Server Express. It could be desktop app, a web app, a mobile app, whatever. Then you submit your cool idea here.
Once the finalists are picked, then you build. The top prize is $10,000 (USD) in cash, another winner will win $1,000 in cash, and all 12 finalists who complete their project will receive $250 in Amazon gift certificates.
There are three judges. Microsoft's Robert Scoble, MAKE's Philip Torrone and a 'Mystery Judge'.
Here's the contest site....good luck!
