The 3rd InterSystems Ideas Contest

Hello Community,

We're super excited to invite all our Developer Community members (both InterSystems employees and not) to participate in our next contest!

💡 The 3rd InterSystems Ideas Contest 💡

We're looking for your innovative ideas to enhance InterSystems IRIS and related products and services. We encourage suggestions based on real-life use cases, highlighting the tangible benefits your idea will bring to other users and how it will enhance developers' experiences with InterSystems technology.

📅 Duration: June 10 - July 7, 2024

🏆 Prizes for the best ideas!

🎁 Gifts for everyone: A special gift will be given to each author whose idea is accepted in the contest.

  • be written by a person, not generated by AI;
