For Devs – Component Code Challenge and INETA Community Champs

Two quick notes from our friends over at INETA:

Component Code Challenge

Ever had these two distinct thoughts – “I have a good idea for an application, however what can I get for it?” and “I would love to go to a big conference DevConnections or Tech·Ed, but how would I pay for it?”.  Haven’t we all had thoughts like that at some time or another?

Well, you are in luck.  The INETA Component Code Challenge for 2012 will send one lucky winner to their choice of those aforementioned conferences for slinging some serious code. All you need to do is create an application using 2 approved controls from 2 approved vendors, create a video talking about your application, and submit it to their judging panel.  The judging panel consists of Bill Reiss (blog | twitter), Nikita Polyakov (blog | twitter), Matt Hidinger (blog | twitter), and Greg Leonardo (blog | twitter) are on the lookout for innovation and creativity in the use of approved controls.  To read official rules click here.
