SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - SnapLogic, the DataFlow pioneer, today announced that it is kicking off its first-ever SnapStore Developer Challenge, a contest for developers creating "Snaps," the connectors, pipelines, and data transformations available in the company's SnapStore online marketplace.
