Android Developer Contest
On April 25, a competition for Android application developers in Ukraine, the HTC Android Developers Contest, starts. Both teams and individual developers can take part. An important condition of the competition is that the application was not previously available in the Android Market and is focused on Ukrainian users (Ukrainian or multilingual interface, with the ability to choose Ukrainian or Russian languages).
The main prize - 35 000 UAH and a HTC Desire phone, for the second place a premium of 10 000 UAH and also a phone, for the third - HTC Desire.
From April 25 to June 10, the opportunity to download applications to the site will be open (in fact, in these months and a half you can write a new application), the results will be published on the site on June 21, and on June 26 the winners will be solemnly awarded.
The organizers do not indicate clear criteria for evaluating applications, but it is known that the jury will take into account the innovativeness and originality, as well as the level of use of the platform's capabilities (GPS, gravity sensors, digital compass, touch screen and camera). Localization of the application for Ukrainian users will be an advantage.
You can learn more about the rules of the competition on the website (in Ukrainian).
Also within the framework of the HTC Android Developers Contest, Android master classes for developers are held. On April 14, the first master class was already held, and the next is scheduled for April 28.
The workshops are focused on developers, but in addition to technical aspects, they affect marketing and application promotion issues through the Android Market. To attend master classes, you must first register .
