NetSquared Mashup Challenge - Developers Wanted!

Tagged:  

Are you someone that has written or would like to write a sweet mash-up? Would you like to get a share of $100,000? Well, NetSquared's Mash-up Challenge is perfect for you.

The challenge will be happening on May 27-28 at Cisco in San Jose, CA, so mark your calendars now.

Below is an excerpt from the post about the challenge:

How to Participate

I'm working with Billy Bicket, NetSquared's organizer, to recruit Project Leads interested in participating in a 4-week sprint leading up to NetSquared's conference, happening on May 27-28 at Cisco in San Jose, CA.

By contributing to NetSquared in the capacity of Project Lead, participants will be working with a leading social innovator working on a range of challenges including:

1. refining some of their ideas about how the data they are using could be rendered in mashups; and

2. in some cases, building mashups using a variety of APIs, products, or coming up with creative technical solutions to particular problems they are facing.

Project Leads will receive access to all NetSquared Hack Days. The next invite-only event is happening on May 4 at Moscone Center in San Francisco and is hosted by Sun and NetSquared. Project leads will also receive two free tickets to this year's NetSquared Conference.

Here is a quick run-down of the role and expectations for Project Leads and here are the simple next steps if you would like to participate:

1. Scroll through the list of 21 Featured Projects

2. Send Billy Bicket (billybicket -at- yahoo.com) an email with your favorite three (3) featured projects, and confirm your interest in participating by Wednesday, April 30 at noon.

4. Once you send Billy an email, he'll send easy next steps (including link to conference registration) and details about engaging with featured projects for expedient approach and execution.

This looks like a great opportunity for anybody interested in making mash-ups!

Thanks for helping to spread the word, David!

One point of clarification that's REALLY important.

The $100k prize is being distributed to the nonprofit innovators who are part of the (21) Featured Projects at NetSquared.
NOT, the developers interested in DONATING their BRAINS.
Nonetheless, still a great opportunity for developers to chip-in their super-powers on behalf of GREAT causes. Holler with any q's or bright ideas, anytime billybicket AT yahoo.com.

Hope that makes good sense to all!
