Take the Rock Paper Azure Challenge

RockPaperAzure Challenge

The Rock Paper Azure Challenge gets underway today!  It’s a chance to prove your coding skills as bots you develop battle it out in a cloud-based game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” (with added twists – dynamite and water balloons).

Though topping the leaderboard will earn you bragging rights, there are prizes for the weekly tournaments (run each Friday) as well.

  1. Get the (free) tools, game code, and trial Windows Azure account
