A Kwwik update on this:
We've had a few entries for this competition but not too many so the
opportunity to win that iPad is pretty good due to the low number of
competitor. The deadline for entry is July 1st but the main thing is
to have something in place for that date and you can then build on it.
We've also managed to get Opta Sports involved and they are now
pushing real-time updates about live games through. So, this is a
great chance to play with some cool real-time Opta stats as well as
#worldcup real-time tweets.
A final incentive is that we have a potential client lined up to use
Kwwika and by building an application using Kwwika you put yourself in
the shop window to be considered for that contract.
As before, if you are interested in entering the competition, or just
having a play with Kwwika, please get in touch (p...@kwwika.com).
