Since ProgrammableWeb covered the Evernote Platform Awards last month, Evernote has continued to make strides with the program. Evernote has now partnered with the African Technology Foundation (ATF) to host a Developer Engagement Event next month (July 8th). At the event, Evernote and the ATF will brief South African developers of the specific details of the competition.

The brief will take place at the Bandwidth Barn in Cape Town. The overarching Evernote Platform Awards maintains its standard set of guidelines: Design, Development, Utility, and Originality. However, a specific set of South African developers will arise over the next month and move on in the competition. Four South African winners will be announced on August 4th. The community will vote once the 4 are revealed and the African Platform Winner will be announced on September 4th.

The goal of the South African event remains the same as the entire Platform Awards program: build amazing products with the Evernote API. Thus, at the developer event, Evernote team members will give an overview of the Evernote API with popular use cases and internationalization strategies for the South African community. The winners will win an all expense paid trip to San Francisco to present their app live at the Evernote conference. To learn more, visit the Evernote Platform Awards page or sign up for the Developer Engagement Event.
