Today we're very happy to announce the Typesafe Developer Contest. The contest – an idea of Martin Odersky's – is designed to solicit submissions of sample applications that can be used to demonstrate the power and functionality of the Typesafe Stack. Martin has very generously pledged his JAX Java Ambassador Award as prize money, with $1000, $500 and $200 for the first, second and third placed entries respectively.
But wait, there's more! Every complete entry in the competition wins a free t-shirt! Entries will be judged by a panel of experts made up of Martin Odersky, Jonas Bonér, Viktor Klang, Peter Hausel, Josh Suereth, and we will be announcing a mystery guest judge soon, so stay tuned!
The contest kicks off officially at this year's JavaOne conference and runs through the end of November.
