One of my work team took the news quite bad — he replied to the news with “Robbed indeed! Right, we’re dropping SF in-favour of emailed spreadsheets.” hehe
However, we seem to have piqued the interest of the honourable Jon Mountjoy, who added this mention to the official results:
For sheer exuberance, John Rotenstein and David Schach deserve a mention for their Daily Shinro game!
I’m not sure what he means by that, but at least it met my goal of getting a mention!
Since we didn’t win that one, I’m now pinning my hopes on the Dreamforce VIP Video Contest. The objective is to create a 60-second (max) video saying why I’d like to attend the Dreamforce conference coming up in November 2009. Here’s my entry:
The top 3 entries get a free conference pass, free accommodation, travel expenses, lunch with Colin Powell and Marc Benioff (I bet he’s a big eater!), a Flip camera and backstage pass to meet the Black Crowes. I’m still trying to think of something to discuss with Colin Powell that he can actually discuss without revealing national security secrets.
The Bottom Line
- I didn’t win the Cloud Developer Challenge (didn’t even come close)
- Luckily, my team at work enjoy playing the game!
- Here’s hoping for a better result with my video
