Tell us how you’re doing - get free Azure service

Happy New Year, productivity hackers!

We hope your 2016 is off to a great start — and guess what? — we want to hear what you’re working on, and give you a little New Year’s gift!

The Microsoft Office 365 team is providing free 90-day Azure trials for the first 50 teams to give us a hint about what they’re building (limit 5 trials per team/submission). To claim your free trial, simply fill out this form by January 17. We’ll send promotional codes out by January 20 to you and all of the teammates you’ve listed.

Although you don’t need Azure portal access at all for building Office 365 Add-ins with API inputs, we still think Azure’s pretty cool.

Azure’s integrated tools, pre-built templates, and managed services make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using skills you already have and technologies you already know.

From broadcasting the Olympics to building massive multiplayer online games, Azure customers are doing some amazing things, and we know that you will, too.

Remember, one-month free trials are available to anyone (get it here), but this extended 90-day trial of Azure is limited to the first 50 teams to fill out the “What are you building?” form. So tell us what you’re up to, and get some Azure service love on us.

Happy hacking!
