Este post vai directamente para o segmento Geek. Trata-se de uma competição organizada pela Ericsson que consiste em desenvolver aplicações móveis recorrendo a API desenvolvidas igualmente pela Ericsson. O prémio é aliciante: 20.000€. Portanto, "code for cash"!

Welcome to the Ericsson Application Awards - an opportunity for student developers to gain exposure with the telecom world and have a chance to win upwards of EUR 20,000 in prize money.
