    Full Description & Project Guide

    Challenge Details
    Our new Topcoder+Predix microsite will be used to inform and recruit Topcoder members to register for the GE Predix Platform! We will be running educational, fun and development challenges focused on Predix! (check it out here: https://www.predix.io/). As Topcoder Designers, we need you to review the content needs, review the Predix brand and pull relevant microsite information from the Predix site. When designing the site make it relevant to you and Topcoder developers. (The user is the Topcoder Community)

    Important: Reference Template
    We will be using the "Blitz" template for the microsite
    - http://blitz.topcoder.com/hpe/
    - http://blitz.topcoder.com/hpe-lpc_design/
    - http://blitz.topcoder.com/droneseries/

    Design the site keeping this template in mind. The site must be branded Predix (so any links going out to the Predix site keeps the brand consistent).

    Winner Selection

    Submissions are viewable to the client as they are entered into the challenge. Winners are selected by the client and are chosen solely at the client's discretion.

    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.
