Imagine Cup Windows Azure Challenge – Sign Up Now


The Imagine Cup Windows Azure Challenge is about getting you and your Team started on the “next big thing” by leveraging Windows Azure platform features to build a web application. We encourage you to keep an open mind and apply your creativity when considering what a web application is, as it can be more than just a website; it may be a service tier for supporting Windows Phone or Windows 8 client applications, embedded systems, a front-end for complex back-end workloads or anything you can think of.

Once you’ve formed your team and passed the Windows Azure Challenge Quiz, we’ll get you a free pass to develop on Windows Azure. There’s no reason to wait!

The sky’s the limit: Use Windows Azure to build a cloud-based app that can turn the market on its ear. It (and you) could be the technology industry’s Next Big Thing.
