The big news continues to be our two monster competitions:

  1. The Windows 8 & Ultrabook App Innovation Contest

    In a nutshell, we want you to write an Ultrabook enhanced Windows 8 app and get it into the Intel AppUp store. The first round involves publishing an article (or just an idea - but the more info, and code samples if you can, the more likely you get through Round 1)). 300 Round 1 winners are sent an Ultrabook, and then race to get their (now thoroughly tested) application in the AppUp store. $1000 to the first 50 apps in the store, $10,000 for the top article in 1 of 7 categories, and a $20,000 Grand Prize.
  2. The Android at Play Contest

    Very simple: Create a new, NDK-based Android game app for Intel architecture (IA) based devices, then write an article about it and you could win a $25,000 cash prize.

There are big prizes but please get your entries in soon! Whether you're a software house looking for some fame and fortune or you're just learning and want to share your new creation, every eligible entry is a potential winner.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
