[Updated Event Date] $1,000 cash and bragging rights for top mobile ‘code slingers’

by Mike Bollinger

Fusion Room, the local software development company behind the Minnesota Developers Conference, has created a new 12-hour competition called the Code Slingers Challenge.

On November 12, self-formed teams of 1-4 people will compete to build a native mobile application on their platform of choice. Development teams can choose to code for iPhone, Android, Windows, or Blackberry, and every team competes against the other regardless of platform chosen. Cross-platform tools for building native apps are also allowed, but mobile websites are not.

“It will be a lot of fun to see the developers compete for the top prize with the best of the team spirit and camaraderie,” said Fahran Muhammad, CEO of Fusion Room.
