Challenge 1 of our Azure Developer Challenge is over and we have 3 new owners of a Microsoft Surface:

Well done - and I wish we could have had half a dozen runners up.

Challenge 1 (Grab an Azure account and post your idea) was extended a little due to a late start, and Challenge 2 (build a website) ends this week. There are 5 challenges, with 3 Microsoft Surface tablets being won every 2 weeks.
