We just launched the 80legs Web-Scale Apps Challenge over at ChallengePost! We’re challenging anyone and everyone to make the coolest apps for crawling and processing web content. The top 3 entries will win some pretty sweet prizes, like a Kindle, original mint-condition Atari, and more.
We issued this challenge in anticipation of our App Store launch, which will happen the week of November 16th. The 80legs App Store will allow our users to buy and run 80Apps created by third-party developers. Our users will get to run custom code without having to do their own development work, and developers get a way to monetize cool web content processing technologies.
More details on the App Store to come! For now, check out the challenge at http://www.challengepost.com/challenge/80legs-web-scale-apps-competition!
