Do you remember how to play the childhood game, Rock, Paper, Scissors? Are you a Windows Azure developer or want to get started? If so, then be sure to check out the Rock, Paper, Azure Challenge for your chance at prizes and bragging rights. In this online game, based on Rock Paper Scissors, developers code their own player “Bot”, host it in Windows Azure, and battle other competitors for weekly prizes. Here’s how it works:
The Rock Paper Azure Challenge will award three new prizes each week throughout the six-week contest which runs from April 5 through May 13, 2011. The top weekly player receives a Kinect and an Xbox 360, second place takes home a Kinect, and third place scores a $50 Best Buy gift certificate. All players will receive the official Rock Paper Azure t-shirt. Bragging rights are free for the taking.
