Code7 Contest Deadline is October 10th

Back in July, Yochay blogged about the Code7 Contest on the Windows 7 for Developers Blog. The Code7 Contest is a worldwide contest recognizing developers building innovative and really cool applications for Windows 7. I wanted to give a quick update on the contest. We are now 5 days away from the close of the Code7 Contest.  Developers, hobbyists and students (age 18+), can upload their videos by October 10th to compete for prizes up to $17,777 at

We’ve had over 4,000 registrants submit applications! We offer kits/training materials available to all registrants to help them build a great and creative Windows 7 application. We are racing toward the submission deadline of October 10th so if you’d like to compete, I strongly recommend you upload your video as soon as possible.

To enter, build an original, consumer-oriented client application that runs natively on Windows 7 (either MFC, Win32, WPF or Winforms) and addresses one or more of the following category topics:

  • Simplify My Life
  • More Media, More Places
  • Gaming
  • Work From Anywhere
  • Safeguard Your Work
  • Applications for a Better Tomorrow

If you want some ideas, you can check out current submissions uploaded by other contestants on the Code7 Gallery page here.

Submissions for the Code7 Contest end October 10th so whether you are a novice or expert – don’t wait until the last minute! Upload your video today at
