A Must-Join Contest for Application Developers
Application developers, here's a wonderful opportunity to showcase your cool apps and win big: Join the InsIDE Stories Developer Contest for applications that are built with Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8. That IDE is now free from Sun!In addition to having their apps featured on developers.sun.com, the top 10 winners will be awarded a Sun Ultra 20 Workstation, which delivers 64-bit and 32-bit binary compatibility and platform choice. Sun quotes a customer on its Web page on that machine, "A Sun workstation, with UNIX, development tools, and support for less than I spend each month at Starbucks? It was silly. It was cool. It was irresistible. I just had to have one." Certainly sounds appealing to me.
The contest rules will be published shortly. Meantime, send in your email address for a reminder when the registration starts later this month. And, if you haven't done it yet, join Sun Developer Network. Downloads of Sun Java Studio Enterprise 8 are available--for free--to SDN members.
