Submission Deadline Extension

UPDATE:

In the interests of fairness to all participants, we extended the submission deadline to reflect the approximately two-week period during which the test lab was inoperable.

The final decision to extend the app challenge was not made until after the last meetup, which is why it was not communicated at that time.

In response to developer feedback, the submission deadline for the Energy Apps for Ontario Challenge has been extended.

Please note that the new dates will be as follows:

  • Submission end date: January 21, 2014
  • Public Voting/Judging: February 3, 2014 - February 17, 2014
