Re: My plan!


Idea/goals mentioned above looks great. Idea of Dev Derby workshops also
sound fantastic. But was a bit disappointed seeing that we'll be giving
away phones, I would like it if we can give Fx OS phones as prize. Prize is
a huge factor... since developing wonderful apps require great amount of
time and prize is a definitely a big motivating factor. I think we should
think of attractive prize, if giving away a phone each month is not

I'd prefer mailing list discussion to any other alternatives!
