I am honored to announce that I am a judge in the “Lab49 WPF in Finance Innovation Contest“. The premise of the contest is awesome; they provide you with some data and you have to create the best way of visualizing it in WPF. I almost wish I wasn’t a judge so that I could compete!
In addition to me, the other two judges are Rob Relyea and Charles Petzold. We have the excellent task of reviewing all of the applications that are submitted and deciding which ones are the best. I should point out, that if you attempt to contact one of the judges regarding your application then you are automatically disqualified.
The prizes are INCREDIBLE. It makes the prizes in my WPF Challenge competition look like chicken feed. You can check out all the goodness here.
What’s even more important than the prizes, however, is the prestige you will receive by winning. I’m sure that the winners of this competition will be raised a notch or two in the eyes of employers at companies which need WPF devs. Think about it, what do you have to lose?
