I'm seeing mixed things from some of the marketing and wanted to see if I should plan on being there monday, or not.
This year there is going to be a single App-a-thon that is being run, there isn't two different tracks as previous. There is an FAQ up that is specific to the App-a-thon that can be found here:
It goes over the general guidelines and ideally will be a bit more specific for you.
""" In the spirit of a fair contest, we ask that professional Quick Base developers do not enter."""
i.e. You don't want to have the best compete against the best? i.e. You don't want to show the true power of QB? i.e. You don't want great marketing? i.e. You want to take out one of the highlights of the entire Empower event?
Just wanted to make sure I understand that correctly.
p.s. I know its not your call, but who should we talk to for clarity?
That is a good question given the change from previous years. I touched base with the Empower Team to get a little more information on the background for the change and they let me know popularity of the App-a-thon was one of the big deciders on this years change. We had so many interested competitors it went beyond the space and resources we had to accommodate the 100 competitors in the App-a-thon and we wanted as many of our users as possible to get a chance at the experience. We have actually already hit a wait list for the App-a-thon. This time around it meant we don't have the full bandwidth to develop and host a track that could fully challenge our developers. It is great to see the enthusiasm for the App-a-thon isn't confined to just our users attending Empower though. If this popularity continues I wouldn't be surprised to see more expansion in the future. I did pass your feedback along to the team for future planning. Thank you for the feedback and interest Matthew.
