The way it works is simple and the rules are well documented, so I won't go into the details: in short, you've got 3 weeks to create a new app, submit it to MyApps and you can win awesome prizes, including 2 laptops from system76 and a many many Nokia N9 smartphones from the Qt project. So if you've always wanted to start application development in Ubuntu, that's a unique opportunity!
So here's a reminder that the Ubuntu App Showdown is officially starting today, and you've got until the 9th July 2012 to create and submit a cool app according to the rules.
Starting also today, we've got a series of app developer workshops to help you get started with writing your app. Coming up:
