SilverlightShow Eco Contest – win a trip to MIX10
The SilverlightShow EcoContest is a cool opportunity for Silverlight designers and developers to show off their creativity and data visualization skills.
Here’s an excerpt from the site:
We are inviting you to create a web application using Microsoft® Silverlight™ technology that helps raise social awareness of environmental damage, and inspires individual or group actions that reduce the harmful impact on climate change.
To name a few examples, your application may:
- show an interesting animation illustrating current and potential damage to environment; may display in an original way slogans and appeals to save the environment
- help estimate the quantity of poisonous emissions (and money) a person saves by doing specific actions, like riding a bike rather than driving a car, adjusting your heating devices to a lower temperature, etc.
- educate how many years it takes to have a trashed material decompose completely
- explain what home, gardening, office activities may be undertaken to reduce contamination and carbon emissions
Not only will I be looking at the entries to see what people come up with, I also have the honor of being a judge for the contest. You have until Feb. 15th to enter your submission. So get creative and “wow” us with your work and we’ll award you a trip to MIX10!
