    Default Microsoft announces Windows 7 coding contest – Code 7


    Microsoft announces Windows 7 coding contest – Code 7


    Microsoft has announced a new contest they are holding for software developers. The objective is simple. Write a native Windows 7 Application (not Adobe Air) that uses one or more of the five new features in Windows 7:

    • Libraries
    • Windows Touch
    • Shell Integration
    • DX11 (DirectX 11)
    • Sensor and Location Platform

    First prize is $17,777 in cash, a free trip to LA, and entry to PDC 2009. Finalists will have an opportunity to present their app at PDC 2009 as well.


    Head over to the Windows Team Blog for full contest details.
