It's my pleasure to introduce our three Challenge Captains! Each captain is responsible for supervising one of our Imagine Cup Challenges: recruiting judges, managing the judging process, and helping students with their questions. You'll now find them in our Community forums:

Jura Clapman
Microsoft Program Manager
Windows 8 App Challenge Captain [forum]

Nick Harris
Microsoft Technical Evangelist
Windows Azure Challenge Captain [forum]

Jukka Wallasvaara
Microsoft Technical Evangelist
Windows Phone Challenge Captain [forum]

Nick agreed to get things started with a short video. He'll tell you why he thinks Windows Azure is awesome, how he made a career in technology, and demonstrate how to make an app with Windows Azure Mobile Services in about three minutes:
