In the past few months we have been keeping you updated on the AXP developer contest – well, we’re getting ready to announce our winners!
This week, on October 8th, we will announce the three winners of the Cisco “Think Inside the Box” developer contest. We will unveil who will be awarded the first prize (US$50,000), the second prize (US$30,000), and the third prize (US$20,000) among our eight finalists who crossed the finishing line. Like we have mentioned in previous blog posts, these awards will be given to the person or team of innovators for the most creative and business-ready applications developed for the Cisco Integrated Services Router (ISR), by leveraging the Cisco Application Extension Platform (AXP).
The judging panel comprised of external industry experts and Cisco executives had the tough job of evaluating the eight finalists from a pool of nearly 900 registrations from 75 countries.
