What a week!

Our new design is out, and we've enjoyed the comments, the discussions and the suggestions. If you have suggestions for improvement or a hit-list of things that positively, absolutely must be fixed, head on over to my "Redesigning CodeProject' article and dive in.

Also, as promised, the final details of our The Windows 8 & Ultrabook App Innovation Contest. Our apologies for the lauch delay, but we decided to not launch the contest as planned, and instead increased the prize pool to a whopping $140,000 cash, with the first 300 winners of Round 1 to be sent an Ultrabook.

The goal of this competition is to get your app into the Intel AppUp online store in time for Christmas.

  • 300 round 1 winners will each be sent an Ultrabook, for free, to be used to test and fine-tune your app.
  • The first 50 successful round 2 entrants will receive a $1,000 prize for getting their app in the AppUp store.
  • All round 2 entrants are in the running for 1 of seven $10,000 cash prizes
  • The final winner gets the $20,000 grand prize
  • Every single entrant also goes in the fast lane for the app approval process.

That's a total prize package for the big winner of $31,000, plus additional promotion and visibility for you and your app, plus you are sent an Ultrabook!


We're also happy to announce the winners of the top articles from last month. Congratulations guys!
