Blackbaud Issues Developers Challenge
Charleston, S.C.-based Blackbaud Inc., a software and service provider for nonprofits, is hosting its first Developer Network Challenge.
The developer that creates the most compelling customization for Blackbaud NetCommunity will win an iPhone and a year of free NetCommunity maintenance for his or her organization, according to a press release.
“The Blackbaud Developer Network Challenge will provide a forum for developers working with NetCommunity to showcase their amazing work and will encourage the sharing of custom parts so many organizations can benefit,” Blackbaud Chief Technology Officer Shaun Sullivan said in a recent release.
The contest is based on leveraging the NetCommunity Open Platform, accessible at www.blackbaudlabs.com. At the site, developers can view clear, easy-to-use documentation and samples, post samples to get feedback, and receive community support in the form of wikis and forums.
Developers have until Oct. 31 to enter the contest. Entries, including code and a description of the application, should be submitted at http://labs.blackbaud.com/NetCommunity/contest.
The entries will be posted to the site after the deadline so they can be reviewed before they are judged, according to the release. Judging will be held at Blackbaud’s Conference for Nonprofits in Charleston, S.C., Nov. 16 to19. All entries will be featured in the marketplace for other users to vote on, and the winner will be announced on the last day of the conference.
