Started as a joke, the team came up with “Milking the Cloud” as a code name to easily refer to the project. It was later adopted as the confirmed name as it goes with the theme of monetizing OSS applications on the cloud.
PHP because we need to contain the complexity of the competition. Preferably Windows based PHP applications because it will make the porting over to the Azure Cloud easier. Open Source because it’s what we’re all about.
Any individuals, teams or companies in Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, Australia and New Zealand.
Up until 5 people. But we will only give prizes to the team, not to each individuals.
Yes, you can. However, we will not provide any technical advice or any support with regards to such components
Contestants from the countries listed in the “Rules & Guidelines” section are allowed to participate. However, we will only offer on-site workshops and will not bear any travelling expenses of any contestants. The same goes if you win, and you want to attend the prize giving ceremony. If you win, and you are not able to attend the prize giving ceremony, your winning package will be couriered to you.
Like we said, any PHP-based Open Source application, so long as you do not infringe the licensing aspects of the application. It can even be an application that you are currently using to offer online services already. We advise that you use Windows based applications to make the porting to the Azure cloud easier. If the application is not Windows based, you MAY need to do some additional tweaking.
The competition will be completely organized by the committee selected from OSDC.my members. Microsoft and ZendPHP will only be playing supporting roles only. This is to drive the idea that the program is community driven, not the vendors, as well as drive support from the community to participate. 3 OSDC.my members have been selected to lead the project.
Each participating entity can only submit one competition entry
