Roch. software firm launches pro-am contest for app makers

Here's some from a piece I wrote about Vacava and its new web app creation software.

Take note professional and wanna-be app makers. They are offering $4,000 and two iPads for the best apps submitted to their Application Invitational.

Check out the print edition for the whole story.

-------------

A Rochester software firm is confident that its new product can make anyone into a programmer.

Logowhite200straptm To prove it, Vacava is giving its RapidBiz system out for free to both programmers and non-programmers to compete in a contest to see who can create the best web applications.

Winners in each of the pro and rookie categories will receive $2,000. Runners-up will get Apple iPads.

Competitors will also be able to earn for money directly from the marketplace for their work.

All of the business-focused applications will go into Vacava's online "catalog." Following the model of the Apple App Store, customers can directly purchase the applications.
The creators will receive all of the money generated by any sales.
