Roundarch Participates in Chicago Installment of Microsoft’s PhizzPop Design Challenge

The Phizzpop Design Challenge will kick off today in Chicago. Roundarch is one of four teams given three days to strategize, design and build an experiential Web application based on the latest and greatest Microsoft Web technology. While not limited only to the browser, the contestants will primary use Microsoft Silverlight, Microsoft’s next-generation development platform for Rich Internet Applications. They will also be using Microsoft’s new suite of tools for interactive software design and development, Expression Studio.

Mark Ferry, one of Roundarch’s Technical Directors, will lead the 3-person team in a challenge to design an application that applies to Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic Games. No details around the specifics of the challenge have been released, making the event quite exciting (and challenging) for all involved.

The winner of this regional contest will move forward to additional rounds cumulating in the Phizzpop finals which will be held at the SxSW conference in Austin, Texas.

Meet the teams.
