Registration for the first set of Google Developer Day (GDD) events in Latin America will begin in two weeks, with the remaining six events following shortly thereafter, announced Phoebe Peronto over at Google Code today.
"This year's Open Call challenges will focus on the Android ADK and HTML5 platforms, while giving you a chance to show us why your GDD country rocks. No matter which challenge you choose, your submission must reflect the regional culture of the GDD that you'll be attending, be this through music, creative imagery, lighting or colors--the opportunities are endless!," Peronot stated.
"A panel of judges in each country will select 10 submissions from each of the challenges to be featured online and in-person at Google Developer Day. We'll also take your submission into consideration when reviewing your GDD application. Remember that Open Call is an optional supplement to your GDD app, though you might get extra credit for participating. In many cases, this'll also mean that you secure your spot at GDD before we open registration to the public."
"The Android ADK Open Call will open on July 18 with the HTML5 Open Call following on August 1. In the meantime, start by brushing up on your skills and familiarizing yourself with the guidelines for Open Call at our nifty website," added Peronto.
