Introducing [insert name here]

December 6, 2010 Appirio

Dave Messigner

It is my pleasure to introduce you to our new, yet to be named community. We are launching it into beta this week at Dreamforce and the first task we have put out to the community is to name it. What better way to launch an open community, then to have the community name itself? (Plus a $2000 prize for the winning name doesn’t hurt either.)

The purpose of this site will be to build a cross cloud community of developers interested in solving and discussing cloud based problems. It will recognize and reward the best and brightest cloud programmers and enthusiasts from across the globe. Challenges will be posted asking the community to solve a variety of problems; if you solve the challenge, you win the prize. In addition to winning money, as a registered member you will have a public profile to show off your work, awards, skills and recognition earned in the community.

We are planning to redesign and launch the community in January, but we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to show the concept at the premier cloud conference, Dreamforce, and sign up some early participants. Take an early peek at the new site mockups (large file 40 MB) to get an idea what the site will be about and what profiles will look like.

The site will be powered by Appirio, but we hope to add many other sponsors over time. So register to see new challenges, win some money and let us know what you think!
