« I see Windows Everywhere » … the first dedicated French student and hobbyist contest on Windows Embedded Technologies !
MS France Windows Embedded and Visual Studio teams announced the first application development contest for students using Visual Studio tools and Windows Embedded platforms, to be showcased at TechDays Paris, an event which attracts 16,000 developers.
The contest will feature 3 categories :
- Automation : my home, my robot, my fridge …
- See , Show and Touch : Screens, Multimedia systems, Kiosks , Interactive gaming devices , Digital Signage …
- Embed , Move and have fun : my car, my bicycle, my skateboard with an engine …
Our Windows Embedded MVP community will be hosting the students for 3 days on the Development Zone of the Techdays exhibition, to coach them on their projects, and help them test their application on the ICOP ebox.
Microsoft France Board members, Windows Embedded Evangelists and representatives from our media partner on the contest Développez.com will nominate the winners during the Techdays France event on February 8TH to 10th. Winners of each category will be rewarded an Ebox & 1 MSDN Embedded subscription, with also plenty of cool prizes for all participants, which will all be given away during a student night event.

By the way I will be at Techdays in Paris to present a “only demos” session… look forward to it! Meet you there!
Finally- a few days when Oliver can relax with his native keyboard ;-)
I wouldn't say this was relaxing, but at least this was lots of fun!
