What is a bounty?

A bounty is a way to attract programmers to develop software to address a particular challenge by offering a sum of money for the first programmer who successfully writes code that addresses this challenge. If you are a Rhea user and would like to have a certain feature enabled, please list it here. The Rhea team will select the most desirable features and pool money together to offer bounties for Purdue students to develop this feature.

To be notified of all new bounties, become a fan of Rhea on facebook.
