The Student Partners are working hard here at Microsoft preparing the third "You Make IT Smart" campaign. This year's competition is around building applications for the new Windows Phone 7 and will start October 11, 2010 - and there are great prizes to be won! For those of you who don't know what "You Make IT Smart" is - read this blog post. Those that participated last year - welcome back. Follow this blog - we will post the rules and prizes in the next few days.

If you would like to start developing for Windows Phone already, check out Sascha's blog entry where he describes how to build a news reader in his hand-on lab. Enjoy!
