€75,000 up for Grabs at the Ford SYNC AppLink Developer Challenge

Are you a developer up for a challenge? Registration now open.

This November, we’re partnering with Ford to hold the first Ford AppLink Developer Challenge in Europe – a unique 24-hour hackathon with a €75,000 prize fund.

The AppLink Challenge gives developers the chance to create Driveable Apps for use with Ford’s SYNC AppLink system, which is used by 2 million Ford vehicles worldwide. It will be the first time developers have the opportunity to work with Ford’s next generation system SYNC 3 in Europe.

AppLink allows drivers to safely use their favourite mobile apps while driving by voice or steering wheel control.

If you have a smartphone app or an idea to create one, come and adapt it for use on the road – make your app driveable. Working with the FordDev team, you’ll get a chance to meet some of the world’s top developers, senior Ford technologists and industry leaders.

There’s only 100 spots available so register your ideas for your chance to show off your skill as a developer and compete to get a slice of the €75,000 prize fund.

Register to compete in the Ford AppLink Developer Challenge.
