Is your interesting project on hold because of lack of sufficient cpu time?

Do you have an interesting project that is stalled because of lack of cloud compute resources? If so I know some guys who may be able to help.

One of the prizes at a recent hackathon was around $8k of cloud computing per month for a year. The guys who won it have not been using the monthly allowance and would like to put it to good use.

What counts as an “interesting project”? You are dealing with hackers who enjoy working at the edge of things and want to be involved in a project that impresses other hackers (here ‘involved’ means telling other people they are involved, not actually helping you with the project in any way). While it is obviously a project that uses computers it does not have to be about computing. Helping your me-to-startup is very unlikely to be interesting.

Hackers are fans of open data, so you will have to have a very good reason not to make any data you produce public.

Send me an email briefly describing your project, why it needs this cloud computing resource and show that you will not fritter it away because you don’t know what you are doing.

The clock is ticking.
