As you may know, OpenCalais is a strategic initiative from Thomson Reuters, which is an industry leader in providing timely, accurate information to financial professionals.
With those professionals increasingly turning to mobile devices, Thomson Reuters is challenging developers to build the most useful, high-quality, and visually appealing mobil apps, and offering $25,000 in cash, as well as premium mobile device prizes and a feature on the New York Times Square jumbotron.
The StreetApps Challenge team is opening up access to Thomson Reuters premium content for the challenge through Thomson Reuters Knowledge Direct, an application programming interface (API). Contestants are also encouraged to include relevant external content that will differentiate their application.
This competition's intention is to include developers in the creative process and challenge the public to think differently about how financial professionals use their mobile devices while on-the-go.
Importantly, as a part of Thomson Reuters commitment to the mobile space, developers maintain all intellectual property ownership for their submissions.
