Code Your Way to Dreamforce

The Cloud Computing industry event of the year is coming. Over 650 sessions covering everything from cloud, to social, to mobile. Speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Tony Robbins, and numerous industry experts and executives of leading organizations. Oh, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are headlining the party.

We can only be talking about one event - Dreamforce. And we want you to go experience it for yourself, September 18th through the 21st:

The basic rundown is as follows. For 30 days, (July 18th through August 16th), we'll pull the top leaders by POINTS won for challenges in the "Salesforce" or "Heroku" categories, by end date. Points will be distributed according to this guide:
  • 1st place = 500 points
  • 2nd place = 300 points
  • 3rd place = 200 points
  • 4th place = 150 points
  • 5th place = 100 points
In the case of a tiebreaker situation, we'll pick the participant who won the most prize money for the same challenges used for the point distribution.

There will be two winners chosen, one based in the US, and one International. The prize is an “all expense paid trip to Dreamforce”:
  • Full conference pass to Dreamforce (and “CloudStock”/Developer event as available)
  • Airfare to and from Dreamforce
  • Hotel accomodations
  • Spending cash
  • CloudSpokes shirt for the event
  • Free VIP ticket to the Appirio Dreamforce After-Party
  • and more...
