Next week we will be posting the score cards for the top 5 entries from each contest category.

Here are some statistics from the contest that I wanted to share with you:

There were 23 contest submissions. 17 in the Open category and 6 in the IBM Connections category.

Also a big thank you to all of the existing OpenNTF Contributors who participated in the contest:

You can see screenshots and watch videos of all the contest entries on  

A huge thank you to the contest judges Mark Leusnik and the OpenNTF Board of Directors for taking the time to carefully review and score each of the entries. You can see the judging criteria on the contest announcement page.

I would also like to thank IBM's Niklas Heidloff for driving the success of the fourth development contest within the community. Ever since I started working with Niklas a few years back, he has always wanted to have a development contest like this. You have all helped to "knock this out of the park (again++++)" for not only the IBM XPages community but for Niklas personally.

As Chairman of OpenNTF I would like to thank all of the people who participated in the contest and to hedersoft for their sponsorship. The community is the ultimate winner here as they now have 23 new assets that can be used to develop and deliver apps..
