I'll probably just be watching, was focusing too much on my presentation this year to enter myself in for competition.
PS - link to your blog post.
What a convenient thing to forget, huh?! Thank you for pointing that out. Here is the link:http://extensitech.com/blog/filemaker-presents-the-1st-annual-devcon-developer-cup/
We are excited to watch and think it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I look forward to meeting you at DevCon and hanging out at Six Flags!
do we know who will be competing?
Beverly -cannot attend devcon this year- Voth
I have not found where they've posted the list of contenders, though they did notify everyone of whether or not they were selected on the 14th of July.
We plan to post more details after the event on our blog, including who competed and who won. We'll try to include as much information as possible.
Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to meet you at future events.

Delfina told me that there will be 16 contenders. Don't know who but makes sense, so there will be three rounds and a final.
What makes you say there will be 4 rounds? I didn't get the impression from any materials released so far that it would be a single-elimination pair-wise competition. If part of the goal of the event is to popularize effective techniques, keeping all competing developers around for all challenges creates the most opportunities for clever solutions to come up.
