Armand and his company will receive a fully-paid license compliments of Bamboo when the product is released as the Chart Plus Revolution Pack next month. The SharePoint Revolution Contest was Bamboo’s theme at the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2008 in Seattle and received hundreds of Web Part ideas from entrants worldwide.
