As we announced a month ago, ReadWriteWeb is partnering with Microsoft this summer on a competition for developers to build the most compelling Visual Studio Extensions. We've already had one submission, and a number of other community members have let us know they are working on an extension they'll submit before the Aug. 31 deadline.

However, we wanted to call your attention to the competition, and also highlight a new video on the Extensions Contest Microsite (also embedded below) that gives a great less-than-three-minute overview by John Bristowe on Visual Studio Extensions and how to build them.


So check out the video above and then get started on your entry!
