It's a competition for programmers (obviously) to compete in order to win a $100,000 prize.
The contest is for programs written in C, Java, or Perl on top of Cisco’s ISR router.
Apparently it's open to individuals or teams, so is anyone interested in forming a team?
I think a limit of 5-10 members sounds fair, but it's entirely open. Maybe even a few DIC teams?
DIC Staff Vs DIC Experts?
EDIT: Just inquired about the languages that are allowed, and I got a really quick response:
"Native and interpreted applications written in other programming languages can be integrated by the third party application if the third party application uses additional support libraries and interpreters."
