This was a tight race from the start, with ngabrani, avidev9, and cloudchallenger all making a run for the ticket. While we still have one last challenge left to finalize for the ultimate final score, we've received word that avidev9 cannot make it to Dreamforce - meaning that ngabrani is our International winner!
(the *almost* final leaderboard - tight as tight gets):
Naveen entered the most challenges of all, and took the competition by storm. Another huge congratulations from the CloudSpokes team on an equally amazing effort! Here's a list of the challenges he won or placed in to give him the necessary points to sweep the International ticket:
- Chatter Sweeper: place 1, points 500
- Chatter Files Related List Component: place 1, points 500
- HTML5 Embedded Tab for Salesforce Mobile Lite: place 2, points 300

The performances by logontokartik, ngabrani, and avidev9 all deserve recognition. So while we're making sure Kartik and Naveen come and experience all there is to see at Dreamforce 2012, we're going to be sending Avinava $550 directly from the CloudSpokes team, to help him fund a fix/replacement for his current broken laptop and cover the wire transfer costs - it's the least we could do for his incredible performance.
Congrats to all our competitors, and stay tuned for our next "Code Your Way" competition in the near future!
