Startup Weekend Redmond!
This last weekend was another intense 54 hours of coding with 13 teams competing in the first ever “Mobile and Gaming” themed Startup Weekend! Startup Weekend partnered with the Power of Play 2010 Conference on Thursday, December 9th that brought in some great mentors to the mix. Additionally, the winning team with a Windows 7 app received $15,000 in prototyping help from Microsoft.
Here is a quick rundown of the winners of Startup Weekend Redmond and of five passes into the WP7 marketplace.
