Challenge Overview

At conferences like Dreamforce, we recevie too many business cards.  It would be great to have an S1 app that grabbed a photo of a business card and updated another component with the data from the business card using an image to text service.  The data will be created as a new contact in SFDC.  Do not worry about de-duping the records.

One easy way to accomplish this task would be to sign up for HP Idol on Demand (you can find some info on it here) and check out this blog post for sample cURL statements.

Reliability Rating and Bonus

For challenges that have a reliability bonus, the bonus depends on the reliability rating at the moment of registration for that project. A participant with no previous projects is considered to have no reliability rating, and therefore gets no bonus. Reliability bonus does not apply to Digital Run winnings. Since reliability rating is based on the past 15 projects, it can only have 15 discrete values.
