So as you might or might not have noticed yet, PHPBenelux is organizing a new contest in collaboration with Microsoft: The PHP on Azure contest. The idea is simple: Build an application in PHP that runs on the Windows Azure platform. I think it's a great idea to participate, let me try to tell you why.

So today is the last day of the European WinPHP Challenge. Unfortunately I didn't have as much time as I had hoped to spend on my entry, MediTerra. Still, I believe I have a nice working version of MediTerra, at least as far as blobs and to a lesser extent tables go.

With the deadline looming (tomorrow is the last day we can work on our projects) I've spent some time today to really get some stuff done. I hope to do some more stuff tomorrow, but at least right now I've got most of the blob stuff in there.

After having set up my environment and started my first coding, yesterday I actually got to play around with Azure. And really, it isn't all that hard! Things like "cloud computing" and "Azure Storage" sound complicated, but I found out that, using the right tools, working with that is a breeze.

Since I am not working with a Windows environment on a day-to-day basis, the first task for the WinPHP Challenge for me was to actually install a Windows environment and get my development environment up and running.

So not too long ago I announced I had entered the European WinPHP Challenge, a contest by Microsoft to build a PHP application that runs on Windows. Now I want to tell you a bit about the application that I'm planning to build.

Today I filled in the registration form for the European WinPHP Challenge
(there is also a Canadian version of that here
). My application, of which I will post more details in a later blogpost, will be written specifically for the Windows Azure platform. It will be an interesting experience for sure.
