We're excited to announce the results of the Ning Developer Challenge!
The Ning Developer Challenge is a worldwide OpenSocial development competition that launched at Campus Party 2010 in São Paulo, Brazil. Carlos de Oliveira Caminha, Germán Gail and Mick Thompson will each receive a US $3,000 award for having the top Ning Apps in the Public Management, Environment and Entrepreneurship categories, respectively.
The competition began on January 25th with all submissions due on March 31st. The entrants were judged on creativity, usability, how well the apps integrate with Ning Networks, viral features, and relevance to
their respective categories.
The winning Ning Apps are as follows:
- WikiCrimes Social - A social version of WikiCrimes which can alert your friends about illegal events that happen in a specific area.
- Environment Friends - Lets you determine how your lifestyle affects carbon dioxide emissions.
- Collecta Brand Tracker - Enables the ability to monitor real-time feedback about your brand across the web.
The winning Ning Apps will be added to the Ning Apps Directory shortly -- thanks to the folks at Campus Party for hosting a successful Developer Challenge!
