In the document there are also some recommendations for the future development mentioned, direction and way, where project should go.

The contest was well organized. Beyond indisputable addition in the motivation for developers, it reached success also in the propagation of projects from the community of slovak open source software developers. We just hope, that next year there will more participants and the competition level will grow as well. We in the Platon SDG already look forward this time.
