DevTour Sets its Sails to Riyadh

ArabNet , Nov 07 2012

If you missed the first 2 rounds of the ArabNet Developer Tournament, there’s no need to panic! The tournament still has a long way to go.

For our third round, we are delighted to invite you to The ArabNet / Bab Rizq Jameel Developer Tournament in Saudi Arabia, taking place on the 22nd of November / 8th of Muharram in Riyadh.

The tournament aims to bring together developers to compete over the title of top developer in the Arab world through 5 competitions taking place in 5 different Arab countries. 4 winners from each country will be awarded cash prizes worth 19000 Saudi Riyals and the chance to represent their countries during the Developer Championship which will take place during the ArabNet Digital Summit 2013 in March.

Riyadh will be the 3rd stop for the competition after Beirut and Amman. Developers will compete individually and put their programming skills and wits to the test and develop web and mobile applications during 4 consecutive rounds that will determine the top 4 among them. The 1st place winner will be awarded roughly 10000 Saudi Riyals, followed by the 2nd place with 5600 SRs, while the 3rd and 4th spots will earn 1800 SRs. The winners will also win free flight and accommodation to compete against the winners from the other countries at the Developer Championship in 2013.
