INETA is sponsoring the INETA Component Code Challenge, with the winner receiving a scholarship to PDC 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. All you need to do is build the best application using Spread and another component.

The Details:
Build a .NET Application (WinForms, ASP.NET, WPF, Silverlight, Compact Framework, etc.) using at least 2 components from at least 2 different approved vendors (yes, FarPoint is an approved vendor) then make a 3-5 minute Camtasia video showing your entry and describing what components you used and why your application is cool. Our judges will review the submissions and the best two will win a scholarship to PDC 2009 in Los Angeles, CA, including air fare, hotel, and conference pass. The submission deadline is 08/25/2009 at Midnight Eastern and the winners will be announced on 09/14/2009. Entries will be judged on four criteria:

• Effective use of a component to solve a problem/display data
• innovative use of components
• Impact using components (i.e. reduction in lines of code written, increased productivity, etc.)
• Most creative use of a component.

See the contest page on the INETA web site for more details and full rules.

That’s it. So what are you waiting for? Show them how you are using Spread today and possibly win a free trip to PDC. Good luck!
