I just realized that I am about 8 months too young to enter this competition. Is it possible for me to continue development if I form a team with other (older) developers?
I think the development and help can come from anyone. The way I read the rules every team member must qualify individually so you either trust your teammates to share any possible award with you or submit your entry through a parent or guardian.
In the more generalized case, I believe there are ways (in the legally binding sense) for you to have a designated trustee to speak/act on your behalf. Typically this would be a parent or legal guardian, but there may be ways for them to allow assignment of limited duties to a third-party trustee for decisions/materials directly related to a specific project.
I'll see if I can get someone more familiar with the legalese for this particular contest to weigh in.
VMware is extremely flattered that you want to be a part of our Challenge. However, it is not possible for you to form a team with other contestants if you do not qualify yourself. The rules state you must be 18 years or older to participate.
Thank you, Robert
I am also too young to enter the competition.
Is it possible for a parent/guardian to sign a note (scanned/posted) saying that I am allowed to participate and to sign a note(scanned/posted) saying that they received any competition money I might get?
