Are You Ready for Microsoft's Rock, Paper, Azure Challenge?

Microsoft is once again challenging developers in its Rock, Paper, Azure challenge, and they can win up to $5000 by coding a player "bot", hosting it on Windows Azure, and then competing in battles against other contestants for weekly prizes.

The prize-winning competition is only open to players within the United States, but entries will be accepted from contestants from other countries, and they will still appear on the leader board.
