    This looks interesting.

    You've posted this as a "competition" and so far the prizes are: made up labels like "Stunning beginners" and a crack at a job or internship. Not quite sure.

    Is there money at the end of this rainbow?


    I don't mean to be rude. I'm comparing options.

    a) Submit and market apps myself retaining all possible rights, control, profits and losses.

    b) The posted option. Competing to give up rights and control to an anonymous corporation for a guaranteed paycheck and a cool label like: "Pioneers of the Caribbean"

    Tough call.
