I got a great email last week from my colleague Susan Shapiro, who works with the EMC Community Network. The EDN (EMC Developer Network) is organizing a coding challenge for EMC World 2010, with a respectable amount of prize money ($25K total split among several prizes) at stake. Being the self-centered guy I am, I immediately confirmed that EMC employees were eligible (they are, but only for one of the prizes) before letting myself get excited.
The concept: write a project where multiple EMC developer technologies can be used in a single program. Bonus points for incorporating other online technologies. Win money and fame and the adoration of the world.
Definitely check out the link for more info. I’m hoping I can find some time in between all my “real work” to put a couple of these tools through their paces.
