Mashup kick off!
I remember, when I was an IT student, I was waiting so much for the summer holiday that now I could miss this feeling sometimes. I’m sure you remember: spending night after night working on coding and development to make sure projects were submitted on time; by the end of June we all end up looking like
However, I recall now that only a month later I was already looking for something fun to develop with friends and I would have loved to play around with all these APIs (Skype, eBay, PayPal, Twitter, facebook, GoogleMaps, MySpace).
As we had our first Skype Night in London two months ago (Meet and Greet) , we heard that developers would like to see some mashups competition sponsored by Skype, eBay, PayPal and some other quite famous companies too . So your wish is our command – we present the Skype mashup competition!
To make it short, the one core part we need to see is a Skype element but I invite you to read more about the competition in our Mashup wiki page. The competition will run from the 1st of July to the 31st of August. The Sep 13th, the jury will welcome all developers to join us for the Skype Night at our Prague office.
For the moment, I would encourage you to join our Public chat, to collaborate by sharing what you know about any API you like and then it will be time to develop during the next two months what you would like to see. Also at the end of the period, I’m happy to share with you that we’ve just opened a new Mashup, Web & Remote channel in our Extra Gallery, where we would like you to submit all your Skype mashup until end of August.
Remember, Skype API is:
Free to use (as in
) with commercial and non-commercial applications.
We, Skype, are all looking forward supporting your concept and of course meeting you in September. Just enjoy your vacations
and come back to say Hi!
