Nokia Developer – Ready.Set () [Code} Challenge

Here’s details of a cool developer event from Nokia developer, perhaps coming to a city near you. Events coming to Atlanta, Boston,  Chevy Chase,  Chicago,  Dallas,  Houston,  Miami, New York,  Ohio State,  San Diego,  Sunnyvale,  Toronto,  Vancouver

Headphones on. Tilt the seat back. Just steady codin’ as the keys get tapped. Get ready, because Nokia Developer is about to turn your town into Dev City with its Ready.Set () {Code} Challenge.

We are hitting the road to 13-cities looking for developers who want to build an experience not just another app. To kick off the Ready.Set () {Code} Challenge, Nokia Developer will hold hackathons across the US and Canada beginning in May. You can sign up individually or form your own team to build the coolest, baddest apps for the Windows Phone platform and Nokia Lumia devices.

Prizes will be awarded on site at each event for the top 3 created apps, top student created app, and most Nokia-branded developer (use your imagination). App winners will be judged on creativity, usability, technical difficulty and app presentation.

1st place: $500 gift card & Nokia Lumia 900
2nd place: $250 gift card & Nokia Lumia 900
3rd place: $100 gift card & Nokia Lumia 900
Student Winner: $150 gift card & Nokia Lumia 900
Most Nokia-Branded Dev: $100 gift card & Nokia Lumia 900

At Nokia, we don’t have ordinary developers, so these won’t be ordinary hacks. We have some amazing experiences in store – like our Re-Charge Room – for developers to chill out between pounding out code. So come showoff your skills and earn rewards. Space will be limited so register early.
