International participants?

I'd love to get involved in the challenge, but I live in the UK.

Is there any chance this will be opened up to the rest of the world?

    As they stated Canada and US only in the registration, I doubt it will be opened up to everyone else until later. If that is the case, you could probably collaborate with a group inside Canada/USA.

    I mean I'm solo (assuming I get approved), and wouldn't mind having at least another person or two to bounce ideas off of, and work with.

    Thanks, I already read those :)

    My question is: Is there any chance this will be opened up to the test of the world?

    Hi Alex,

    For this specific challenge, I'm afraid not. We do, however, truly appreciate your support and I will make sure that the team knows that there are UK developers interested in participating in a future challenge.

    All the best,
    Marny

    What about us Canadian citizens living abroad? In parts of the website it says it's open to any Canadian citizen or permanent resident, yet in others, it just says residents. What gives?

    As far as i understand you may register a online del ware company and participate. It does not say that owner have to be North American resident
