Remember that playground game, Rock, Paper, Scissors? Well, that’s old school - it’s the 21st century, and we’re taking it to the cloud! Today, we’re launching the Rock Paper Azure Challenge!
My colleagues Brian Hitney, Peter Laudati, Susan Wisowaty, and I have been feverishly working on what promises to be a fun (and profitable!) way of getting your feet wet with Windows Azure. Leveraging an open source .NET project created by Aaron Jensen and hosted on github. we’ve turned it into a weekly contest (official rules here) where you can write a bit of code to play Rock, Paper, Scissors (with a few twists!) and compete against your fellow geeks for weekly prizes including an XBox 360/Kinect bundle! There are two primary components to the challenge:
Our first webcast is next Tuesday, and we invite you to join us then. For the next couple of days though, feel free to give it a whirl before we start the first official weekly round!
