Google to host $100,000 developer challenge for Project Ara

45 sec read

The Project Ara team just wrapped up its first developers conference, and although there was plenty of excitement, there are many huge challenges ahead before the modular smartphone becomes a Real Thing. To that end, Google is laying down a challenge to developers and offering a $100,000 prize as an incentive. The details of the competition will be made public in mid-May on the Project Ara website.

Google’s Project Ara is still considered a moonshot — one that has a small percentage of success — but it certainly has garnered the interest of tech geeks and developers around the world. Now, in an effort to attract even more developers, Google is apparently gearing up to offer a developer challenge worth as much as $100,000. Google hasn’t revealed the details for the challenge just yet; instead, we’ll have to wait until sometime next month to hear what sort of criteria the company is looking for. Tech News World learned about the two grand prizes, however. “The top two runners-up will get all-expenses paid trips for two or three people to the next Ara devcon — there will be a few more held this year — and guaranteed hardware for the project,” the news outlet said, citing information from the head of Project Ara Paul Eremenko.
