VMware’s Office of the CTO Announces Third Annual Fling Contest

VMware 2014 Fling ContestGrab your thinking cap and get those creative juices flowing, because VMware’s Third Annual Fling Contest has just kicked off! This annual tradition has been running (with some name changes along the way) for two years now, and we are excited to bring it back for 2014. Flings are free apps and tools that are developed by VMware engineers. They will probably never make it into a product, but we offer them to the public to download, play around with, and use, at labs.vmware.com/flings.

The Fling Contest is open to anyone and everyone—you don’t even have to be a VMware customer! All you need is a cool idea for a new Fling. Is there a problem that you think needs solving? Suggest something to us! We review each and every one of the submissions (last year we had over 200 entries) and a panel of judges selects the best one. The winner gets to see their idea made real—into a Fling! And if that’s not enough, we will also send the winner to VMworld 2015.
