As Bulent points out, we had record numbers attending our Force.com Sites webinar last week, during which we announced the Force.com Sites Developer Challenge.
The challenge page has all the details, but in short the rules are pretty simple: “You can use any or all parts of the Force.com platform, as long as you use Force.com Sites, and you can submit as many applications as you like.” And you have a month to do it in – submissions close on January 9.
That’s it! Create anything, as long as you use Force.com Sites. And Sites enables an entirely new breed of applications, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what you folk submit. If you’re new to Sites and Visualforce, we have a couple of challenges that you can use to get you started. See the Developer Challenge Guide for details.
Oh, we’ll be handing out a number of prizes too! Developer Challenge t-shirts, iPod Nanos, iPod Touches and more!
Here are some handy resources:
- The Force.com Sites home page
- The Developer Challenge home page
- An Introduction to Visualforce – the user interface technology underlying Sites
- Our documentation page, which points to a number of useful books
