Hello Cloud competitors must:
Be 16 or older
Attend an accredited school
Create and deploy a web app in the cloud
Get social with Azure
This month, we're introducing a new activity called "Socialize your Azure Web App." This activity will teach you how to leverage the Twitter embed code on your Azure page. (You’ll need a Twitter account, too.)
Not only does the Hello Cloud contest give you the opportunity to put cash in your wallet, you will also be doing something that you can put on your résumé or CV. Your future boss will be looking for “cloud computing” under your list of skills. Hello Cloud activities give you hands-on experience with creating, exploring and deploying projects to the cloud with the same tools used by professional devs.
As a young innovator, you already have the potential to shape the future of technology — and our world. With the Hello Cloud skills under your belt, turn that potential into reality.
