Announcing Express Yourself

May 23rd, 2007 by Will Tschumy

 Microsoft, here in the Bay Area, is happy to announce “Express Yourself” at 111 Minna on June 22nd.  Doors open at 6:00pm.

One of the strengths of Microsoft’s UX platform (Expression, Silverlight, WPF, et al) is the designer/developer workflow.  With this in mind, we’ve asked 5 of the many talented design firms to send us their best designer / developer pairs to compete for eternal glory, also known as an xBox 360 and many, many games each.

Each team will present their solution in a 10 minute demonstration on the 22nd to our panel of judges.  The judges include:

Where do you come in, might you ask?  Well, what’s the point of having a contest and party if there are no attendees.  We’ve got food, drinks and a DJ for the party.

Join us for a great evening of design, food and music.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Great idea, MS should do more events like this!

    So, I think the MS judge should be from out of town. Hint.
