A couple months ago, Yahoo released a promising new search API called Yahoo Search BOSS. It allows you to query results from Yahoo’s servers and display them how you want, reordering them even. No hard query limis are in place either. It’s pretty awesome.
Well, if you’ve got some l33t coding skills, Yahoo has a challenge for you. Mashable and Yahoo are partnering to bring you the BOSS Mashable Challenge. You have until September 28 to build an amazing search mashup using the BOSS API.
The BOSS Mashable Challenge pits developer against developer to compete for the grand prize of $2,000 and an article on Mashable about your winning entry. How do you win?Â Build a kickass mashup â€“ search engine or any other Web app â€“ using the BOSS API and any other data sources/technologies.
The public will vote on the submissions to see who gets the grand prize and who the runner up is.
Sounds like a lot of fun, and I bet we’ll see some cool web apps come out of this.
