Last year VMware organized the very first VMware Open Innovation Contest and it was a very successful contest which resulted in an awesome fling called “pro-active DRS“. The Open Innovation Contest is back again in 2013 but now called the 2013 VMware Fling Contest.
Now lets get those creative juices flowing again, think about the challenges / problems you are facing everyday and how these could potentially solved and head over to the 2013 VMware Fling Contest website and submit: https://flingcontest.vmware.com/. Do note there is no need to rush to get your idea in, take your time – think about – but make sure to submit it before Nov 15th.
Of course there is an awesome price again, the winner gets a free pass to VMworld 2014, on top of that the VMware engineering team will execute on your idea and a fling will be released. How cool is that? If you need more info, stop by at the VMworld Innovation Booth at the solutions exchange.
I for one encourage everyone to enter. The pass is great but having VMware and the engineers execute on the idea is truly the best prize! A pretty awesome feeling.
