Arduino & Microsoft Competition


  • Hardware Contributor

    Good morning guys, i have just stumbled across this competition that is supported and sponsored by Arduino and Microsoft. The winning contestants get the brand new arduino board.

    Sorry if this is in the incorrect area, I couldn't find a more fitting forum section.

    Competion Info



  • Good find. I bet based on some of the projects I've seen discussed here, this community could submit some really cool stuff!!

    disclosure #1 - I work for Microsoft (as an IoT specialist)
    disclosure #2 - I don't have anything to do with this contest (but I wish I did)... 🙂

    Oh my, we have an Microsoft employee in our community! xD - Get involved with the competition, either on microsoft's side or enter if possible. It looks like something worth putting the community into IMO.



  • Ha! yeah - actually there are more than one of us (MSFT employees) here.

    I'm not eligible for the competition (never am) because I'm an employee, but definitely encourage the community here to put the best ideas forward. There are some incredibly smart folks here and really cool projects.

    @stevebus - Its a shame I'm only certified/qualified by you guys (Microsoft) and not an employee too 😞 One day, one day ay! We can all hope in life can't we haha.

    But on a serious note, I think one of the projects that calls mysensors.org its home could possible get a win. Let hope someone sees this topic and follows it through 🙂



  • Really interesting, maybe I could build something cool around the Arduino HeatpumpIR (https://github.com/ToniA/arduino-heatpumpir) library I've been building. Right now I'm integrating it with Domoticz (http://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=7179#p69647).

    I'm an ex-Microsoft employee from Finland (resigned about a month ago).
