2011 MeeGo Coding Competition
Cosimo Kroll has announced the successor to last year's Maemo Coding Competition, which saw community donations awarded to the best apps submitted in a number of categories. Cosimo describes some of the draw of participating either with a prize-fund donation or as a programmer: To make this year's competition bigger and better, we urge all MeeGo enthusiasts to organize events during the MeeGo Coding Competition 2011 in their Local MeeGo Network. We are sure that Intel and Nokia are going to assist you doing that. [...] Developers of promising apps will probably receive a MeeGo device. If you will be selected by the community as one of the main winners, you will fly to the MeeGo Conference in November and sleep there in a nice hotel. There you will meet a lot of like-minded. Without having to pay a single cent. If Nokia likes your app, they will preinstall it on their first MeeGo device! But even if you won’t win one of the main prizes, that does not mean you get nothing! We will have cash prizes this time, too. Independent of sponsorship funds, last time the community extensively donated. About $10000 came together! Will we be able to beat this record-sum this year? Your donation is just a click away.
