At one of the local developer groups I attend, they are considering utilizing the ATOM Developer Challenge as an exciting competition at the local level. Basically a dozen or so individuals are going to enter the Intel Developer Challenges to see if anyone from the group can win. They will add some minor rules of their own to make it interesting (Must be completed in a week for example). There are some interesting side bets going on internally ;) I urge you to share the developer challenge opportunity with others in your local developer community. Opportunities of this magnitude only come around so often. Best of luck everyone.
