Thank you everyone for participating in the MWLUG 2011 XPages Design Competition.

In addition to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, Ferry will receive from Teamstudio, one development license and 10 user license of their Unplugged solution. In addition, Teamstudio will help convert Ferry's app if possible to a mobile app using their tools. Baiju Thomas will receive a Amazon $100 gift card as runner up.
