Microsoft’s Dev:unplugged HTML5 competition – me one of the judges

Microsoft recently launched their Dev:unplugged HTML5 competition, to create outstanding showcases.

There are a number of interesting prizes, both in cash and in travel form, and also some free material you can use in your creation. The rules for an entry are:

  • No Plugins: The submission must stick to HTML/CSS/JS on the client-side (no restrictions on the server-side).
  • Same Markup: The submission has to work across IE9 RC, Chrome Beta and Firefox Beta (not sure why it’s only Google Chrome for WebKit and no trace of Opera).
  • Making the Web Native: The submission must be amazing! We will be keeping an eye out for submissions that push the envelope and blur the line between a web app and a native app.

I am, together with some really smart people, a judge for this contest and will be a part of picking winners. No, bribes or similar won’t help. :-)

If you like HTML5, want to code something really cool together and at the same time have the chance to win amazing prices, I recommend you to take part of this competition!
