IBM Connections Coders: Get Ready for the Appathon !

View Comments

The past several blog posts have been about cool new apps built for IBM Connections and how they were announced at IBM Connect. Needless to say, I'm extremely happy with how the IBM Connections ecosystem has grown and I want to keep growing it!

To that end, at IBM Connect I talked about the Appathon which has just started. In case you missed it, I wanted to make sure you were aware. For this contest, the IBM Connections category will have five $1000 prizes and the deadline for submission is June 23, 2013 so there's plenty of time to get started !

If you haven't done any app dev work for IBM Connections, I would like to suggest 2 steps to get started.

1) Get familiar with the SDK: and you can even play *today* with the SDK over at The playground is a web-based live demonstration of the JavaScript libraries exposed in the SDK.

2) If you missed IBM Connect, you can still get access to most presentations and get going creating apps for IBM Connections. A good presentation to check out is SHOW301: Becoming an IBM Connections Developer by Rob Novak. To access the rest of the presentations, click the image below:

Now, get coding and good luck!
