NephoScale Cloud Computing will provide ten CS1 Cloud Servers to participants of the Mendeley/PLoS API Binary Battle. The servers will be available until December 15th 2011 for all selected applicants. If you have signed up for the API contest and need a hosting environment, email NephoScale (firstname.lastname@example.org) with details about:
- How your app will make science more open
- Your project name
- Your operating system
- Your affiliation
- Why your entry deserves to be selected for a NephoScale Cloud Server.
Here’s what Bruce Templeton, CEO of NephoScale, said about why they are supporting this contest:
“we want to remove any barriers to entry in this API contest so that developers, some of who may be working in academia, can get creative and build apps that make science more open”.
