DevCSI Developer Challenge at Open Repositories 2012

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

The DevCSI Project (funded by JISC and based at the Innovation Support Centre, UKOLN, University of Bath) is pleased to announce that it is once again organising the Open Repositories Developer Challenge 2012 at the Seventh International Conference on Open Repositories in Edinburgh,  OR 2012. We are working closely with the Repositories Fringe and the Challenge is kindly sponsored by Microsoft Research.  Please note hash tags #or12dev #devcsi

The Challenge is taking place between Tuesday 10 July and Thursday 12 July, 2012. The Challenge is:

Show us something new and cool in the world of Open Repositories.

The initial deadline for your entry will be 10a.m., Tuesday 10 July 2012, which means you can start on your entry now!

You will then have a chance to pitch your idea to an audience or experts who will give you feedback. You will then be able to make changes to your idea and re-present it to a panel of judges the next day, Wednesday 11 July 2012. Winning entrants will present to the conference on Thursday 12 July 2012.

Prize money of £1000 is available for the winners and runners-up. There is an additional prize for the entry that demonstrates the most innovative use of Microsoft Technology (.Net Gadgeteer kit) which can also be submitted to the main Challenge above. We are hoping that we will be able to provide an opportunity for the winning team to meet up to complete its entry after the conference so that the community can benefit from it.
