Big Winners from the Developer Challenge
As we roll into the Thanksgiving holiday we wanted to give a quick update on all the exciting happenings in the Developer Challenge program.
In the last two weeks we closed seven different challenges and will be awarding more than $300,000 in cash prizes (and other extras) to 22 winning teams. We look forward to announcing the winners and helping the teams grow their respective ventures!
We currently have six open Challenges – four ONC and two private – and will be awarding more than $400,000 in prizes to 18 winning teams. The prize pots are getting bigger and we’re seeing a great response from the community!
Some other things we’d like to highlight this week include:
