Mission:

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is a key factor to a successful career and a happy life. If you could reach for a daily app that rebalances your priorities, reduces stress, promotes wellness, or just makes you smile, what would it look like?

  • Build an app designed to improve or track your work-life balance.
  • The app can be a fun mobile, web or console, using any API of your choice.
  • We are looking for great execution, quality of build, functionality and how useful it would be as a daily app.
  • Hint: Have you checked out our celebrity judges? Feel free to impress them with an app that relates to their brand and/or services!

This contest is open to US developers only.

30 Days left for the contest to end


Code:

  • The app should be hosted as a runnable project on Programmr.
  • If you are unable to run your app on our platform, you can submit your entry by sending us a link to the live project (hosted on a server of your choice) and the source code, hosted on a public repository like Git. Please remember that we absolutely must have the source code to evaluate the project.
  • If you are not hosting your project on programmr.com, then we would like to request you to include a little note explaining the problems you faced on our platform and the reason for hosting elsewhere. This is purely to understand what we need to improve and to make programmr.com better for all of you.
  • Please remember that the code must be open source. However you are free to commercialize your project after the contest ends.
  • Programmr and its sponsors will not commercialise your app's source code.

Well, what are you waiting for? This contest is such a great invitation for you to get started on open source if you haven't already!

Looking forward to seeing your entry soon. On Your Marks, Get Set, Code!

A word from Anthology, our sponsor:

We believe the world would be a better place if everyone were always in their "just right" job at every chapter of their career. Because life is too short not to love your career.
