Announcing and launching the Appathon - Social App Dev Contests
brought to you by OpenNTF
OpenNTF is happy to announce and launch the Appathon sponsored by IBM Business Partners, TIMETOACT GROUP and WebGate Consulting AG, and IBM developerWorks. Contribute your open source project between now and June 23, 2013 and have a chance to win one of ten $1000 prizes.
With the Appathon contest, OpenNTF and the sponsors want to further increase the number of IBM Connections and XPages open source projects to help with the adoption of IBM Connections and XPages.
John Head, chair of the OpenNTF marketing working group, said: "OpenNTF.org is pleased to be sponsoring our fifth and sixth contest in the past two years. We believe one of the best ways to promote community activity on the site is with active engagement, and these contests are just one of the ways we engage. The exposure for the developers, not including the prizes, highlights the high demand and interest in open source solutions built around IBM Social Business and Collaboration technologies. As our number one priority is outreach, we are excited about the possibilities of what Appathon will bring. Good luck to all the developers!"
The Appathon contains two social app dev contests: IBM Connections App Dev Contest and the XPages App Dev Contest.
Deadline for contest submissions is June 23, 2013. The announcement of winners is expected one to two weeks later.
Let the games begin!
