2012 Device Program
Editor: Ryan Abel
We mentioned the start of the 2012 Device Program last issue (well, more specifically, the Community Awards portion of the program), but we'd like to remind you both of its existence and its purpose again this week.
Nokia has alloted 100 devices (60 N9s and 40 N950s) for distribution by the community to community contributors. The devices will be distributed based on 4 categories of contribution (25 devices per category): for maemo.org Coding Competition winners, in a manner to be decided once the format for this year's competition has been hashed out; for maemo.org Community Awards, which aim to recognize contributions from community members with continuing histories of significant contribution; for community applications being published to the Nokia Store, to encourage the publishing of more community applications to the Nokia Stor; and for Qt 5 application ports, to encourage the porting of Qt 5 applications to Fremantle.
Discussion about the specifics for several of the categories is still ongoing, but submissions are open for the Community Awards (which seeks to recognize past and continuning community contributors) and should be open until June 12th. I'm once again encouraging you to poke your too-humble community contributor neigbors to file a submission if you believe they deserve a Community Award.
