Azure Trivia is back and it’s bigger, better, and faster than ever
3 min read
OK, all you #AzureTrivia fans! This year, we’re ramping up the fun and the challenge of everyone’s favorite cloud services game, so get ready to get your trivia on—this is going to be the best year yet.
It’s bigger. Every week, ten lucky winners will be chosen at random. That means 40 people at the end of this will get major trivia bragging rights.
It’s better. Not only do you get to flaunt your trivia muscles, but we’re giving away a prize that you’ll be able to put to good use—a super cool IoT DevKit. Have fun and experience new learnings by building cloud-enabled IoT apps.
It’s faster. To up the ante—and the thrill—this year, there are only four weeks to play—so make each week count.
How to play
Starting April 26, 2021, check out @Azure every Monday on Twitter for a new Azure-related question to tackle. Get it right, and you’ll be entered to win a weekly prize. Just select your answer from multiple choices and tweet out the correct answer no later than 11:59 PM Pacific Time on Thursday each week. (Be sure to use the handy auto-generated tweet, including #AzureTrivia and the original image, for official entry to win.)
Pro tip #1: Come back every week for a brand-new problem to solve and the chance to win.
Pro tip #2: Looking for a competitive edge? Check out these free Azure learning resources to boost your problem-solving skills.
Good luck trivia fans! Give it your best shot and have some fun out there!
How do I enter?
It’s easy! Follow these three simple steps by Thursday at 11:59 PM Pacific Time:
- Visit twitter.com/azure
- Find this week’s #AzureTrivia question (hint: it’ll usually be our pinned tweet) and click on the correct answer.
- Tweet the auto-generated confirmation message from your own account. Make sure your answer hashtag, #AzureTrivia, and the original question image link are included in your tweet.
What if I get the answer wrong? Can I still win this week?
No, unfortunately only correct answers are valid entries. But you can try again next week!
Am I eligible to win?
You need to be:
- A legal resident of the 50 U.S. states (and the District of Columbia).
- 18 years of age or older.
- A software developer, IT professional, or student studying computer science or IT management or related fields at the time of entry.
You cannot be:
- An employee or a family member of an employee of Microsoft Corporation, Bread and Butter Digital, LLC, Merkle Inc., Wipro Designit Services, and its subsidiaries, affiliates, advertising agencies, and sweepstakes parties.
How many winners are there each week?
We’ll randomly select 10 lucky winners each week for a total of 40 winners.
When do you announce the answer?
We’ll announce the answer on Friday morning each week. Check the @Azure feed to find out if you got it right.
How do I find out if I won?
Check your mentions on Fridays! We’ll reply to the week’s winners every Friday. Be sure to DM us within 72 hours so we can confirm that you’re eligible and get your address to send you your prize!
What could I win?
Create smart hardware solutions with a super cool IoT Developer Kit! You can use the MXChip IoT DevKit to develop and prototype Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that take advantage of Microsoft Azure services. It includes an Arduino-compatible board with rich peripherals and sensors, an open-source board package, and a rich sample gallery. Plus, get a few other goodies for your desk that will “wow” your coworkers (if you put them “on camera”).
Can I enter every week to win?
Yeah, go for it!
If I’ve already won once, can I win again?
That's what we call an #overachiever and we're impressed! But no, unfortunately, you can only win once per the 2021 calendar year.
What if I go back and answer a past week’s question? Am I entered to win this week?
Glad you love answering trivia questions! But no, you are not entered to win this week’s sweepstakes if you answer a past question. You must answer the current week’s question to be entered to win this week.
Can I enter to win more than once per week?
No, you can only enter to win once per week. You can use #AzureTrivia as much as you want, but multiple tweets within the weekly entry period will not increase your chances of winning.
*No purchase necessary. Game ends May 20, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. For full details, see the Official Rules.
