Press Releases

Welcome to the new Press Releases forum! Our old press release system has been retired but we've moved everything and everyone to a new, shinier home. Enjoy!

A press release must be written for the purpose of announcing something newsworthy. Advertisements, promotions, or anything smelling even vaguely of spam will be deleted. All press releases must be relevant to the development community.

CodeProject Announces Windows Azure Developer Challenge $2,500 Grand Prize Winner

The 10-week developer challenge saw 21 winners claim over $16,000 in prizes



TORONTO, July 11, 2013 — CodeProject, one of the world’s largest online communities of software developers, is pleased to announce Phil Lee as the grand prize winner of CodeProject’s recent Windows Azure Developer Challenge[^].

Over $16,000 in prizes was awarded to 21 individuals throughout the 10-week Windows Azure Developer Challenge. The contest pitted developers from across the globe against each other in five stages of competitions that incorporated tasks like building a website, using SQL, spinning virtual machines, and building responsive mobile access for their Azure apps.

A big congratulations goes to Phil Lee for the hard work he put into the contest and the unbelievably comprehensive walk-through and write-up of his journey through this Azure challenge. His entry, YouConf - Your Live Online Conferencing Tool, illustrates his entire process from the formation of a simple idea all the way to a fully functioning database-powered website talking to an Ubuntu VM, running Apache Solr. The end result is a beautifully responsive design that functions well on everything from desktops to smartphones. Phil Lee drew inspiration for his entry from Scott Hanselman’s blog post[^] outlining a low-cost, community conference platform.

As Grand Prize Winner, Phil Lee will be awarded a $2,500 cash prize, as well as promotion on CodeProject and Microsoft owned and operated properties. Both fame and fortune!

"Thanks to the whole CodeProject team and Microsoft for organizing and running the competition,” said Phil Lee, the New Zealand-based Grand Prize Winner. “If, like me, you don't always get to work with the cloud, or the very latest and greatest technologies as part of a day job, it can often be hard to find a good reason (or time) to investigate them in depth. Having competitions like this really forces one to get involved, find out as much as possible, and hopefully help out others along the way. I've learned a ton of stuff about Azure and .NET, which hopefully I'll be able to put to good use in the future."
