Microsoft Intern Hack-A-Thon
The Microsoft Developer Division hires students for a summer internship each year, and these interns were given a special chance last week to test their skills at building applications. It was called the Microsoft Intern Hack-a-thon, and these students formed teams and got the chance to build an application that targeted Windows 8, Windows Phone 7, Kinect, or the Azure platform.
At the end of the 2-day competition, these applications were demoed by the interns, then judged and voted on by those in attendance, including a few Microsoft execs. Competition was pretty intense, as was the eating at an intern barbecue - and in the end there were 4 teams who took winning memories back to school with them.
Let's take a look at what they built.......
