Create a Game in Microsoft Silverlight 2… and win an Xbox 360!

Silverlight gives a lot of love to .NET coders, especially those versed with Microsoft development tools like Visual Studio 2008 and the new Microsoft Expression Studio. PHP developers have a lot to benefit from Silverlight as well. Using the Silverlight runtime, XAML, PHP code, and a touch of JavaScript, you can add a lot of splash to your PHP apps. Now, your mission–should you choose to accept: Take your shot at gaming stardom if you think you have what it takes to build a cool RIA game and you could win an Xbox 360 or other fabulous prizes. Hurry! You only have until May 15, 2008 to enter your game!


Note: No purchase necessary to enter or win. Open only to residents of the 50 United States (includes D. of C.) who are 17+. Game ends May 15, 2008
