Over $15K up for grabs in Microsoft’s Code Your Art Out Competition

Posted by Rob Lewis

Up to $15,000 is up for grabs for the best app submitted for the Code Your Art Out coding competition.

The Microsoft-sponsoted competition has partnered with TechSoup Canada to help identify non-profits that need apps and there will be a bonus prize of $5k for winning entries that help non-profits.

The big theme behind this contest is using Microsoft technology in a way that integrates with other technology. It’s about collaboration, not only between non-profits and developers, but between Microsoft technology and Open Source.

The first place app will win $10,000, and the second place one will win $5,000. As well, partner company TechSoup Canada will award $5,000 to the first-place or second-place applications, or potentially both.

The competition opened on March 1st, and closes on June 1st. The top two finalists will be announced on June 10th, and on June 24th, the top two finalists will compete head-to-head in an event in downtown
Toronto.
