Last Developer Standing

In case you were unaware, Microsoft Canada is in the middle of running a Last Developer Standing competition. Modelled on the wildly popular (or at least, moderately watched) Last Comic Standing show on television, the idea is to give developers a series of tests.  For each test, only the developers who answer the most questions correctly get to move on to the next round.  What’s even better is that the final developer gets more than just good wishes…to the tune of $25,000.  More information can be found at

So why am I mentioning this now?  As part of this contest, I have been asked to blog about some of the topics that contestants will face.  These posts are available on a specific feed (, as well as my main feed.  So stay tuned for information that might very well be what you need to be the Last Developer Standing.
