Opa Developer Challenge
The theme of the application is entirely up to the participant's creativity. However, if your application uses the Box API, you are also eligible to win the special prize: a 5-seat enterprise Box account for life*.
Top prize is a $5,000 Amazon Web Services coupon, 2nd prize is a one month free café membership at NextSpace
, and 3rd prize is an Amazon Kindle Fire. In addition, the first 100 participants who submit a fully-working app will be rewarded with a $50 AWS coupon
(limit of one coupon max per person).
PLEASE NOTE: All prizes will be fulfilled by the sponsor of this challenge (MLstate, the creators of Opa) and their partners.
You MUST host your app on Amazon Web Services. To request access to their free tier, go to http://aws.amazon.com/free
If you wish to be considered for the Box prize, please mention that you are using the Box API in the comments field when you upload your files or submit your URL.
Submit the URL for your live app. If it requires any credentials, be sure to provide them in the comments for your submission.
Upload all your source code as a zip and provide any documentation and/or instructions that are needed. Please be clear and concise with any setup instructions.
A video of your application using Jing or Youtube would also be helpful but not required.
Your submission will be judged by a panel of peers based upon this criteria. If you
would like to request an extension, please read Can challenge deadlines be extended for more time? on our FAQ. We do not want to grant extensions
unless there is a valid reason.
