    It would be nice to see the teaser of the challenges :)

      @Alexander: Yes, I'm sure it would :) But a teaser, hmm. What I can say is that the challenges will be related to one another, and that the team will begin in a bad situation but with some luck, using provided web-based APIs that reads from and writes to the simulation, get to know their surroundings and make things better during the course of this developer game.

    @Roberto - Argh! And you know I tried really hard to find a free Saturday when I started planning this some time back, sorry about the clash.

      Thanks, Peter! I know, it's hard to avoid clashing with other interesting stuff, there's so much going on!

    @Dan - thanks! It sounds really awkward but when I starting thinking about it it kind of fit, being not so serious and techie at the same time.
