:: Final Call for the International Developer Challenge A1 InnovationDays ::
Since almost 4 weeks, the international developer challenge A1 InnovationDays attracted more than 30 ideas from creative minds. The challenge is open to anyone who addresses the grand theme “Open Communication by Open Standards” and can come up with ideas for cool services built on IP-based communication (SIP & IMS).
Ideas can be posted on the platform
www.a1innovations.at/en/static/a1innovationdays until August 15, 2008.
All entries are open for voting and discussing by all users. On August 15, the 10 highest ranked ideas will be short-listed and judged by a panel of recognized experts as well as representatives from the sponsors. End of August, the best teams behind the ideas will be invited to a prototyping event near Vienna in order to realize their ideas and demonstrate their potential. The winning team can choose among several awards, such as a week of powder snow skiing in Austria. After that, the sponsor (mobikom Austria) is keen to bring your idea to the market.
All submissions must be based on Open Source Software.
