Ubuntu Scope Showdown rules

Rules & Eligibility

In order to make a level playing field for all submissions, any work on your Scope must begin on or after the start of the Scope Showdown (Thursday 30th October 2014), and must be submitted before the deadline (Wednesday 3rd December 2014 at 23:59 UTC).

Scopes must use one of the available languages supported by the Ubuntu SDK. This means scopes can be written using C++ or Go. It is required to use the Ubuntu SDK for developing these scopes, as we provide plugins and templates that make writing Ubuntu scopes significantly easier.

Participants must be legally able to distribute the code used by their scope as well as any dependencies, and both must use an open source license that allows Canonical and any other recipient of the code to distribute them.

Make sure you read the full terms and conditions.
