App Throwdown and UnCon @ SugarCon

Discussion created by Matt Marum Employee on Mar 2, 2015
Sugar is excited to offer a couple of different developer focused events this year at SugarCon 2015 in San Francisco, CA.

App Throwdown @ SugarCon – Submissions Open!

SugarCon is just around the corner – and that means it is also time for another round of the App Throwdown! The App Throwdown – always an attendee favorite – is a showcase for your coolest, most useful, and most innovative extensions of the Sugar platform. 

While App Throwdown is always a blast – we wanted to make it even better this year. How? Well, for starters, we’ve opened up the submission eligibility to EVERYONE! That’s right – anyone who wants to submit an extension, connector, custom app integrated to Sugar, etc. can apply. Simply fill out this ONLINE FORM to be part of the processes. This is your chance to show off to Sugar leadership, executives, and, if you are selected as “Best in Class”, the entire world on SugarCon’s main stage! 

Submissions will be accepted until March 27! So get your submission ready – all you need is a cool app/connector/customization, a short video of your app in action, and a completed form to enter! 

Check out the App Throwdown site for all the details and submission information!

UnCon @ SugarCon

I am also personally excited to announce that UnCon is back again this year at SugarCon 2015.  The format for this year's UnCon has been redesigned to be better than ever!  

More than ever the UnCon will appeal to Sugar Developers of all skill levels by hosting technical roundtable discussions on any topic that interests YOU.  Have questions or thoughts about Elasticsearch?  Need some pointers with Performance tuning?  Looking to get started with Sugar development by building your first Dashlet? Tackle any of these topics and many more with the support of Sugar Engineers.


When you are finished talking and are ready to get coding, the UnCon is also hosting an Internet of Things themed team hackathon.  To keep the creative juices flowing, we are going to be serving beer at the hackathon so it should be a lot of fun.  Join us at UnCon to learn how sweet it is to be a Sugar Developer!


Check out the UnCon 2015 site for some more details!

More details to follow on both the App Throwdown and UnCon in the weeks to come!
