We've posted some good stuff around IIS lately, but we want MORE! Matt Hester and Keith Combs, two of our rock star IT Pro Evangelists, have thrown down the gauntlet for those of you who are currently a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP), and have launched a VERY cool contest.  Here are the details:

First off you have to be a current US Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and being willing to show off your rock star screencast skills.  To enter you need to create a 5 – 10 minute screencast on IIS and PHP integration.  The screencast must showcase the integration of PHP into IIS 7.0 on Windows Server 2008.   I also want to see it actually work you should show an PHP application on the IIS server (i.e. Wordpress) running and demonstrated inside of Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2, and verified it is running inside of the IIS 7 environment.

Sound cool and techy and you want to enter? but your not sure how do all of that?  Well I am here to help.  Here are some excellent resources for you to get started:
