This is a mandatory field. If you have used Web Services, Azure provides you a URL after you deploy your app on Azure (e.g., https://exampleapp.azurewebsites.net). Use your Azure URL here. If you have used Azure only as a backend service, just provide the Email id associated with your Azure account.

Your Details

These are two mandatory fields. Use the Email address you provided in Phase 2 while submitting your GitHub repository. Use the phone number associated with that Email address.

Provide these details for only that one person in the team who submitted the idea in Phase 2.

Video

This is a mandatory field. Upload a short 5-minute video explaining your project. This could be an AVI, FLV, WMV, MOV, or a MP4 file. Maximum file size should not exceed 10 MB. If your file size exceeds 10 MB, you may host it as a public video on a video sharing service (e.g. YouTube) and copy/paste the URL in this field.

In this video, demonstrate how your solution works (in brief) and what part does Azure play in this solution.

Supporting Document

These are optional fields. Use these options if you want to associate any Presentation or any other document to support your final submission. Judges may use these documents to get a better understanding of your project, but you will not get extra points just for uploading a supporting documents
