Our friends at Ericsson have now initiated the first stage of the Ericsson Application Awards 2012. The competition is an opportunity for developers to win both considerable money (€ 15,000) and fame (access to Ericsson promotion and distribution). In the first stage, Ericsson is calling on you to develop “Apps for Good”, which means applications focused on solving global challenges such as education, poverty alleviation, refugees, disaster relief, agriculture, access to energy, transportation solutions, smart homes and buildings, and weather.
Sounds like a fun and pretty useful challenge, right? In our opinion, it’s a really commendable idea, and we’d love to see more philanthropic initiatives like this.
Sign up for the challenge, and read all about it on the Ericsson Application Awards website.
