Build apps with impact! Create a mobile app for YOUR community using ObjectRocket by Rackspace’s MongoDB and Redis. Build. Help. Win.

What's lacking in your community? Can you be part of meeting that need? We think so.

Rackspace is challenging US and UK developers to create mobile solutions for neighborhood needs. Community security, block beautification, local transportation efficiency, neighbor-driven social gatherings, or a network of lemonade stands with wifi--it's up to you!

Build a mobile app that addresses community issues using ObjectRocket by Rackspace's Data Services and you’ll not only have a shot at some cash prizes, but you’ll also be helping create some change in your own neighborhood.

Bonus: You get to try ObjectRocket by Rackspace's MongoDB and Redis for free over the life of the competition.
