    Default Demo your Alpha app, win a netbook

    Hi all,

    So ... a few weeks ago Richard came up with the idea to launch a contest that will award a free netbook to an Alpha developer. The contest rules are simple: send a demo video of a cool app that you built in Alpha. We'll pick one winner randomly from all submissions, and award that person a new netbook.

    The app can be simple, complex, desktop, Web, old, or new--it doesn't matter. The only requirement is that it be built in Alpha Five, and that YOU think it's truly useful.

    The goal of the contest is twofold:

    * To collect some real-world demo videos that showcase Alpha developers, apps, and Alpha Five on our blog and elsewhere.

    * To promote Alpha developers and partners.

    Here's the problem: We've only received one submission so far. Now, we KNOW that you have built many, many, many great apps in Alpha Five over the years. But if we don't get more submissions, the contest is a non-starter.

    See this post for the contest's details:

    And we hope you'll send a few minutes to share your programming genius with the world by submitting a demo video of your favorite Alpha app.

    If you need help creating the video, let us know here or in a comment on the blog.

    Hope to see your videos soon! :)

    Does the app have to be complete? I'm pretty new to A5 and have the main form of my app almost complete but not some other stuff. When does the contest close?

    Nope. Any app or app-in-progress will do. Show us what you have! Remember, the winner will be decided by a random drawing, not by the app they submit.

    No limitation. We'll pare it down in size if need be using conversion tools.

    I checked. No hard deadline, but we'll do the drawing if we get at least 10 videos. Ideally we'd love to get more, but 10 makes for a good contest. If it drags on, though, and we don't get 10 vids, we'll obviously have to make a decision based on what we have. So, I think it's safe to say that we'll do the drawing when we have 10 videos at least, or before 3/31.
