LinuxTag 2012 App Contest

Note: The results of the contest have been posted below

Win a Nokia N9

How to participate:

If you have written an app for the N9, enter the URL of the source code (SCM link or tar ball/zip file), the URL to the .deb file (or the Nokia Store URL) and a link to a screenshot into the first table. If you have written an Open Source Qt application that runs on the Desktop, you can also win by filling in the table, but you don’t have to create a package. The jury must be able to compile the application, though. Note: We will also reward incomplete concepts, if the idea is good.

The winners will be announced at the Qt Booth at LinuxTag on Saturday, 14h Berlin local time. We will raffle extra goodies among the present crowd.

Conditions:

  • The source must be compilable (sending in pre-packaging will not free you from this condition)
  • The application must be licensed under an OSI-approved [opensource.org] license
  • You must be the principle author of the application
  • The copyright remains with the authors
  • The jury’s decision is final

Announcement of the winners

When? Saturday, 26.05
Where? LinuxTag 2012, Qt Project booth, Hall 7.2a, Stand 106

How to develop

Download the Qt SDK [qt.nokia.com]. It contains everything to get you started. If you want to write an application for the N9, read How to develop for the N9 [developer.nokia.com] as a starting point. See how other companies developed their apps for the N9 [youtube.com].

Winners

First of all: A big Thank You for participating and your patience to everyone! The jury was overwhelmed with the amount and quality of entries that we have been receiving over the relative short amount of time. We have been trying to carefully test and evaluate each app by usefulness and effort and criteria matching. It was a tough choice, but unfortunately, we only have eight devices to give away.

So without further ado, I am happy to present the winning applications. Their authors have been awarded a Nokia N9 (note: as per regulations, there will be only one N9 per app, awarded to the principle author):
