Ever since I started developing mobile applications, I always thought to make a name for myself in the field. But despite developing some good applications I always remained obscure and the company I worked with got all the credit and the money.
Not that I complain of the company, after all they gave me the job and the chance to do the stuff in the first place and they did give me decent promotions and bonuses. But still something was missing. May be I want a separate niche for me. I don�t have dearth of ideas, what I lack is opportunity.
Now this Nokia contest �Calling All Innovators� seems like the opportunity I had been waiting for. If my innovation makes the grade, it will give me the ideal platform to showcase my talent and ideas on the biggest stage possible through their global contest. There are three submission categories to choose from (including ECO-Challenge, Emerging Markets and Technology Showcase), which means everybody has multiple chances to win. Winning developers will: �Get to exhibit their applications at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain �Participate in �meet and greets� with Industry leaders, VC�s, Mobile Operators and distributors �Win cash prizes up to $25,000 (USD). I say, this is really cool. URL for more information is www.callingallinnovators.com
Why am I discussing this? Well, what are the joys of winning if there is no competition?
So guys get ready to play catch up, the winner might just already be there.
