That’s right. “… blue.” (not “… SAP.”, if that is what you were thinking)
We, the guys with the BLUE logo, are moving full steam towards November 3 when we kick of SAP TechEd InnoJam Amsterdam 2013. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, read my earlier blog post (where you learn everything about 33 hours straight, healthcare challenges, from zero to running code, chance to enter TechEd DemoJam Amsterdam, winner shirt collector’s item, etc).
So, let me now tell you a little more about some of the things that wait for you, if you REGISTER. Few tickets left! Hurry!
We do have something OLD, which in fact is not that old. It’s the event format that we developed last year: a hackathon that is a combination of Design Thinking and software development. Until now, we only had “satisfied customers”. Everybody loves it, so we are going to continue with this recipe for fun design sessions and long coding nights.
We do have something BORROWED, although I probably shouldn’t say that. … I’m happy to announce that BlackBerry is returning to the InnoJam stage with their latest mobile technology. This means you’ll get a chance to develop on the BlackBerry 10 platform, and, from what I hear, will be able to show your demos on a BlackBerry Z10. Pretty sleek, I think. And that’s not all. Developing with BlackBerry technology during the event automatically enters your team into a separate competition to win BlackBerry Z10 (1 device for each team member).

Finally, we also have something NEW. We are going to judge you in 4 categories (creativity, desirability, feasibility and viability), with the winner being the team that scores highest in combination. OK, that might be old news, as we did that last year as well. Now, the new component is that we will also award prizes to the highest scorer in each individual category. I don’t want to reveal too much here, but we went totally “geek pride”.
