Mobile Linux computing coding contest underway

Filed under
Linux

A contest to create applications and find bugs in a mobile "Linux desktop server" is underway. Realm Systems will award $75,000 for the best entertainment, security, IT infrastructure, productivity, and "other" applications for its Black Dog Linux device, as well as for "most bug reports."

Realm is a small (75 employee) startup focused on secure desktop mobility products. The company hopes its coding contest will help establish an open source developer community behind the technology.

A grand prize of $50,000 will be awarded for the best application created or ported to run on Black Dog. First prizes of $5,000 will be awarded for applications in security, communications/networking, entertainment, productivity, and "dogpile," which is everything else.
