Calling all Coders at AU2012

Sweet prizes, too bad I'm such a noob when it comes to programming...

from Autodesk:

APPHACK Entries are due Nov 14!

Time is running out to submit your idea for a chance to earn a $5000 prize!

APPHACK @ AU is a virtual code-fest to produce apps/plugins for AutoCAD using the ObjectARX and/or .NET APIs, and it's open to any ADN member who can produce a working app/plugin for AutoCAD. The event culminates in a live demo at Autodesk University in Las Vegas on November 26, 2012. Simply submit your app and a demo video and you're in the running for some nice prizes. But hurry - the deadline for submissions is 11:59pm Pacific on Wednesday, 14 November, 2012.

Submit something you already have or write something new. Just do it soon so you're in the running for one of the great prizes! The theme for the event is Connecting AutoCAD to the Cloud - entries that most closely adhere to the theme will earn advanced placement. Check out Autodesk Exchange Apps for examples.

1st Prize:  US$5000
2nd Prize: US$2000
3rd Prize:  US$1000

Ten finalists will be awarded iPad Minis.
