By on May 20th, 2010

The FIFA 2010 World Cup is less than a month away and I definitely can’t wait for the ball to get the first kick. I bet there are several other Soccer fans out there who would have the same excitement.

If you are an Excel developer, here is your chance to win an Xbox 360 Elite Video Game Entertainment System and a copy of the Xbox 360 game: FIFA 2010 from the Microsoft Excel team.

The Microsoft Excel team has announced a developer challenge in anticipation of the release next month. Developers will have to create an Excel application using Excel 2010, which can be freely downloaded and post it online. Once that is done, they will have to fill in a short entry form found here and email the entry form to E2010App@microsoft.com.

Entries will be judged based on usage of new Excel 2010 features and VBA, ease of use and relevance to the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The first prize winner will win An Xbox 360 Elite Video Game Entertainment System and a copy of the Xbox 360 game: FIFA 2010. The second prize winner will win a national team jersey of their favorite team. Prizes will be distributed on or before July 4th.

    Do you know if this “challenge” was legit? They said they would unveil the winners July 4th, but we (those submitting entries) have heard nada – there seems to be no list of the 27 winners and their entires yet available.
