Students #ContributingCode is a team competition for students in the Palo Alto, CA area which will be held during the last two weeks of July 2012.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to volunteer your unique talents and creativity on a two week long sprint. Don't worry if this is your first coding competition or you have never coded. The @CloudFoundry Developer Relations team will provide training showing you everything you need to get started.
For your hard work, we will provide prizes, food and giveaways. You won't regret coming even if you don't win. This is a great social and intellectual extra-curricular activity.
The contest is over and the results are here.Winners
