Box joins as a CloudSpokes partner, with a new Mobile Developer Challenge!

We are thrilled to announce that Box.net has signed on as a CloudSpokes partner! Box is a simple, scalable and affordable solution to manage documents, media and all your content online. Share files as a link. Sync files on the desktop. It’s file sharing, reinvented. Box’s solutions are enterprise-focused, public cloud throughout, mobile-friendly, and API-enabled. Seriously, say no more, you had us at “hello”...

"We're excited to be working with CloudSpokes - we believe that their contest platform and community of developers will be immensely helpful in spurring innovation in the cloud." - Alex Willen, Developer Advocate, Box

In true Box fashion, we’re kicking things off with quite a bang.  Box recently announced their Mobile Developer Challenge with $35K in cash being awarded, and the core of the challenge described as follows:

“As more and more apps move to the cloud, we want to make it incredibly easy for developers to connect them to Box. To this end, we’re announcing some exciting updates to our mobile platform today, with the launch of two new API methods that support collaboration and content management for third party apps that leverage Box. We’re also upgrading our developer resources with an all-new Android library and an updated iOS library.”
On top of that, today they’re launching a contest exclusive to CloudSpokes in which they’re giving away $1,000 for the creation of a PHP library for their API. They’ll be holding several more contests over the next few months so be sure to check regularly.
