Final submissions are in for the XBRL Challenge, our contest for developers to create open source analytical applications. The contest application submission period closed on January 31 and we were pleased to get 90 initial applications and we now have 15 top submissions. Go to http://xbrl.us/challenge to check out the applications and to vote for your favorite (we will post the winner of the “popularity” poll but the judging panel will determine the final Grand Prize winner).
Our expert panel of judges (from Safeguard Scientific, Viano Capital, Security First, WRDS and Google) are reviewing the submissions right now and the Grand Prize winner will be announced on February 29, 2012 at the XBRL and Financial Analysis Technology Conference, from 3 – 6:30pm, followed by a cocktail reception. This is a free event to be held in NY and all members are welcome to attend. Register at http://xbrl.us/nyssatechconf
