I just wanted to let you know about an exciting new contest that Microsoft has just launched with support from HP. It’s called the Develop Without Borders Challenge and it encourages developers and architects to submit a solution design that helps a non-profit organization. The concept is simple: Developers choose a charitable organization that they would like to help, understand the business challenges that it faces, and propose a solution based on the 2007 Office system that addresses one or more of those challenges. The solutions that make the most impact on the organization and that best utilize the Office system technologies can win up to $50,000 to help pilot or implement the solution.
It’s a great chance to do something good for the world while you learn about the platform abilities of the new 2007 Microsoft Office system. I encourage you to visit the site and take a look.
Thanks for your time,
