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!
