Evernote has invested $100,000 in prize money in the contest, with the first prize winner taking home $50,000 — or enough to help a fledgling developer bury himself away for a year on the project of his choice.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Six finalists will receive another $5,000 each, and special prizes exist for the Student and Wildcard categories at $10,000 a pop.
It’s not often you see a company pouring so much money into a competition, in what looks like an aggressive move to encourage competition and innovation in their addon directory, the Evernote Trunk.
The winners will be announced at the Evernote Trunk Conference, which is a one-day event for developers who have invested in Evernote as a platform.
