DreamHost Announces One-Click Developer Challenge

DreamHost contest gives the next generation of developers a platform to showcase their talents.
Dec. 7, 2010 - PRLog -- BREA, Calif.—DreamHost today announced the One-Click Developer Challenge, which will provide thousands of dollars in prizes to developers who design apps for DreamHost’s one-click script installer catalog.

“Our one-click installer catalog comes standard with our hosting plans and allows users to easily add some of the web’s top applications to their site,” says Brett Dunst, VP of Marketing at DreamHost. “This contest offers developers the chance to showcase their apps along side these applications. And, the prizes aren’t too bad either.”

Developers will be able to submit their apps to one of five categories: Lifestyle, Productivity, Social, eCommerce and Entertainment. Winners will be awarded prizes ranging from iPod Touches and Kindles, to a brand new, fully-loaded Macbook Pro.

"We're encouraging people to submit as many apps as they can develop, but only their best app will be awarded a prize," says Dunst.

In order to be eligible to win, applicants must be directly involved with the development of the submitted app. If a team is responsible for the app, only the person that submits the app will be eligible for the prize.

Submissions for the One-Click Developer Challenge will be accepted from Dec. 7, 2010 until midnight on December 31. The top entries will undergo a series of reviews by a panel of DreamHost developers before being voted on by current DreamHost customers. Winners will be announced in February.

The winning applications will be featured as “Premier Apps” for three months in DreamHost’s One-Click Catalog.
