OpenNTF had two successful XPages development
contests last year. For the third contest we've changed a couple of things:
First of all the prizes were doubled.
Developers can win now prizes with a total of $4800. We did this since
this time we also ask for full applications and we understand that it's
more work to implement them. Thanks a lot to our sponsor We4IT.
This time we decided to give out monetary
prizes. Shipping, customs and taxes caused some logistical issues in the
past. It was also hard to identify the gadgets we could give out since
everyone has different preferences.
We used an objective process for the
judging for the first two contests. This time we wanted to allow even more
people from the community to be part of the judging process. Please contact
us if you are interested.
We'd like to do more of these contests
in the future. However we don't want people to wait with their submissions
until the next contest starts. So this time developers can submit all new
OpenNTF releases that have been submitted after the last contest ended
We kept the goals generic again as in
the first contest. But we'd like to see contributions of social and/or
mobile apps as in the second contest. That's why we have a new judging
criteria "Special consideration will be given to submissions of social
and/or mobile applications".
