As hopefully most of you know OpenNTF
is hosting a regular / ongoing XSnippet contest.
Every quarter contributors can win 4 x $100 for submitting simple code
snippets to the XSnippets
application. In 10 days (09/30) the current contest will end. So make sure
to contribute your code snippets soon.
We are also looking for volunteers again
to help with the judging. If you are interested, please contact us.
Below is the description of the contest
XSnippets are simple snippets that developers
can easily copy and paste in their own apps. Typically a snippet has only
one type/language, e.g. XSP or Java, but a snippet might also contain several
smaller snippets with different language types (see example).
All snippets that are submitted to http://openntf.org/xsnippets
between the launch date of the contest and the end date (September 30th)
count as submissions to the contest. Contributors have to be approved
OpenNTF contributors, e.g. they
need to be covered by an ICLA or CCLA. All snippets are open sourced under
the Apache license version 2.
Contributors can win in two different ways:
1) Two contributors will be randomly selected from a pool of contributors
who submitted four or more snippets during the contest. Each of the winning
contributors will receive an award of $100.
2) Two contributors will be chosen via judging based on technical value
and wow factor for single submissions. These two contributors will also
receive $100 each.
All prizes will be awarded as cash prizes. Winners will be able decide
whether they want to receive Amazon vouchers or receive payment via PayPal.
