Lifehacker And Microsoft's Developer Challenge: Round 1 Ends Tomorrow!

Got a great Windows, Windows Phone or Azure app idea? Register in our comp, publish your app to the Windows Store and you could share in over $13,000 in prizes. But hurry, round 1 ends this Thursday night — tomorrow! There has never been a better time to finally work on that new idea, or port your existing app over from Android or iOS. Here's everything you need to know.

The finalist from each round will win an awesome HP ENVY X2 convertible ultrabook valued at $999 RRP and an $80 RRP Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse. One runner-up in each round will also receive an Xbox 360 4GB Kinect bundle (worth $300 RRP), an Arc Touch Mouse, plus a Microsoft Wedge Mobile keyboard valued at $100 RRP .

Note: The finalist from each round moves into final judging for the major prize; the runner-up does not.

THE MAJOR PRIZE: is a trip to TechEd Australia 2013, including the opportunity to present the winning app! We’re talking conference ticket, accommodation for 5 nights, and airfare (economy) up to the combined value of $4000! Not bad, right?
