Enter the Windows Home Server Add-in Idea Challenge '09 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Two years ago, Microsoft kick-started Windows Home Server add-in development with a competition called Code2Fame which saw a wide variety of entries from across the USA, with plaudits going to Andrew Grant for Whiist .

    WHS community sites We Got Served and Home Server Blog have announced the launch of a new add-in competition, open to every home server owner around the world – the Windows Home Server Add-In Idea Challenge ‘09!

    You don’t have to be a developer or technically minded to enter. All you need is your creativity and imagination to come up with the best idea for a future Windows Home Server add-in, which will then be coded up and released to the community for all to share.

    Here’s how the competition works:

    May 1st 2009 Submit your ideas online via the competition entry form

    May 31st 2009 Entry period closes

    June 15th 2009 Semi-finalists announced (approx 30 ideas) and public voting period commences

    June 30th 2009 Public voting period ends

    July 1st 2009 Top 10 Finalists announced, competition judging period begins

    July 15th 2009 Judging period ends

    August 1st 2009 Winner announced

    December 24th 2009 Deadline for winning add-in to be released

    The winner of the competition will see their idea brought to life by add-in developer Felix Kollmann (author of Router Control ) and we’ve secured a load of fantastic prizes, courtesy of a few of our friends in the home server world (think HP, Microsoft, Tranquil PC, Diskeeper, PerfectDisk and more!). We’ll announce full details on prizes this Monday, but up front I’d like to thank our competition partners for their generosity (you’re going to like the prize list!)
