View Full Version : SenchaCon 2011 App Contest and Sencha.io Sync

12 Aug 2011, 7:01 PM
Hello everybody!

In the blog post about the SenchaCon 2011 App Contest, there is the following statement:

We expect competing applications to use the latest versions of our JavaScript SDKs (namely Ext JS (http://www.sencha.com/products/extjs/)and Sencha Touch (http://www.sencha.com/products/touch/)), and encourage you to use our Sencha.io Cloud Services (http://www.sencha.com/products/io/).

But Sencha.io Sync is still a limited developer preview. I applied to be included in this limited preview but never received any response. I applied under two different email addresses in case there was a problem with my first submission.

It doesn't seem very fair to me to have a contest where the use of a certain technology is considered in the judging process when that technology is only made available to a limited number of people. I think that the use of Sencha.io Cloud Services should either be made available to everyone or it should not be included in the SenchaCon App Contest.

Hi there -- feel free to use Src but if your'e interested in using Sync and we haven't gotten to you on the private beta, PM me and we'll skip you in the line.
