After presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to join any presenter and create a group or may choose to work on their own. Each group will have five minutes to present their solution to a panel of judges on Saturday night. First place wins: $500 in cash and up to five5 Kinect v2 sensors (one per team member). Additional prizes will be awarded to the top presenting teams, to each team presenting, and to each attendee. All registered attendees will be given Kinect v2 sample projects, source code and a thank you gift!

    The Microsoft event was absolutely first-rate! Loved the fact that Microsoft even loaned equipment (Surface Pro and Kinect) to participants. Everyone had an opportunity to learn and to create.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
