Abstract: Compete with your peers and see who can get the most points the fastest...

Note: Everything is subject to change during the beta process… ;)

    Introduction

The intent of the CodeGear Developer Network Points Program is to encourage people to write articles, rate articles, make quality submissions to CodeCentral, log bugs and other issues in QualityCentral and so on. As the program evolves we will add activities that earn you points, tweak the number of points earned per activity, etc, etc.
