Announcing the third OpenNTF XPages Development Contest - Let's double the Prizes
Niklas Heidloff    


OpenNTF is happy to announce the third development contest on OpenNTF.Org sponsored by IBM Business Partner We4IT. Contribute your open source project between now and June 3th and have a chance to win $800 for controls and $1600 for full applications.

With this contest OpenNTF and We4IT want to further increase the number of XPages open source projects to help with the adoption of XPages.

Stefan Sucker, CEO of We4IT, calls for  the third entries to the third XPages Development Contest saying:


"For a quite a while now I have felt that the future of Notes applications has lain in the browser.  And over recent months this view has been supported by the amount of XPages development work that We4IT has been commissioned to deliver.  The majority of this work has been in transforming existing applications into modern web apps.

I know it can be difficult to learn new technologies; we have been down this road ourselves.  Now we would like to help encourage other developers in their own journey.

In the last OpenNTF competition, both the number and quality of the entries was impressive.  Ultimately it was these outstanding and innovative results that have led us to again, to exclusively sponsor the OpenNTF XPages
Development Contest"

Bruce Elgort, OpenNTF chairman, said:


"The developers who have entered the first two development contests have given the XPages development community an incredible wealth of controls, library controls, mobile, social and full blown apps. With the 3rd contest I see this trend continuing and expect to see a significant increase in the number of developers and entires that are submitted to the contest. Good luck to all who participate and a big thank you in advance from the IBM XPages community."

We ask participants to contribute XPages source code for 1. controls and 2. applications.


1) Re-usable controls can be custom controls or library/Java controls. Reusable controls have typically parameters to configure and use them in different contexts. The controls need to be documented to make them consumable by other OpenNTF developers. Especially for custom controls it needs to be documented which design elements to copy to use the controls in other NSFs. There are many good examples on
http://xpages.info/contest.

2) Applications contain or integrate all necessary functionality for users to fulfill certain tasks. Examples are the IBM templates, e.g. teamroom, or other examples listed on
http://xpages.info/downloads. Applications also need to be reusable, e.g. by externalizing all custom specific configuration, providing customizability options, documentation, etc.

Implementation: Participants can choose how to implement their applications. There are no prerequisites to use certain technologies other than that the solutions need to work in XPages. All contributions need to work on Lotus Domino 8.5.3. They can also require Upgrade Pack 1 or the latest XPages Extension Library from OpenNTF.

Awards and Recognition


There will be different prizes for the two categories. All prizes will be cash prizes this time. Winners can decide whether they want to receive Amazon vouchers or whether they want to get paid via PayPal.


1) Controls

The two winners of this category will receive $800 each.


2) Applications
The two winners of this category will receive $1600 each.


OpenNTF will also create videos and screenshots (if not done by contributors), blog about these controls and have them put on
XPages.info as done for the first and second contest.

Criteria


We'll use the following criteria when judging the contributions:

1) Reusability, consumability and documentation
2) "Wow" factor and completeness of solution
3) Overall business value
4) Amount of work to build the submission(s)

5) New this time: Special consideration will be given to submissions of social and/or mobile applications


The judging will be done by OpenNTF again but we invite people from the community to participate in the judging. In that case they obviously cannot participate themselves and cannot judge submissions from colleagues in the same company.

Eligibility


Everyone can participate and submit nominations, with the exception of the OpenNTF Board of Directors. While members of the Board may not personally submit a nomination, other employees of their respective companies may submit. A contribution can be submitted by more than one person but the award would have to be shared between the submitters. Winners should also be aware of any rules that their employer, state or local company has regarding participating in contests and winning prizes. A nomination can be done by more than one person but the award would have to be splitted.

Prerequisites for valid Submissions


Any open source project may be submitted for consideration for this contest that has been accepted for either the Apache or GPL catalog on OpenNTF. All snippets need to be posted under the Apache license in XSnippets. The following points describe in details these prerequisites.

1. Authors need to be approved OpenNTF contributors, e.g. they need to be covered by an ICLA or CCLA (
details).
2. Submissions have to be posted under one of the four accepted OpenNTF licences. For example for Apache submissions the Apache license has to be applied correctly (
details).
3. Submissions must have been cleared by the ip-manager at openntf dot org so that they can be added to either the Apache or GPL catalog. Contact the IP manager if you need to use third party code.
4. Submissions will be evaluated on Domino 8.5.3 with or without extension library. Non-working submissions or submissions that judges cannot get to work will not be considered. No other product versions will be used for evaluation.
5. Submissions will be evaluated on the most common browsers Firefox, IE, Chrome and Safari (latest releases). If you're aware of issues of your submission in certain browsers please let us know.
6. Submissions need at least to provide two or three paragraphs of documentation, some screenshots and in the optimal case a short demo video (all in English).
7. All new project releases are eligible that have been created after the second contest ended (12/02/2011).

Submissions


You need to have the code on OpenNTF and send a mail to support at openntf dot org and ip-manager at openntf dot org (for IP clearance).

Schedule


June 3th 2012: Deadline for submissions
One or two weeks later: Announcement of winners

OpenNTF would appreciate if you could help us to promote this contest.

There are more than 850 projects on OpenNTF and many different types of projects which makes it sometimes hard to find the projects certain types of developers are looking for. In order to address this OpenNTF introduces the notion of "project spaces" to group similar types of projects together. Example spaces could be everything related to social or everything related to IBM WebSphere Portal. OpenNTF contributors can request spaces if they have contributed several projects and hav [read] Keywords: connections ibm openntf security websphere websphere portal

A little while ago, I created a new project from one of my GitHub repositories: XPages Scaffolding. At its core, Scaffolding is the template that I use when creating new XPages projects, and it contains a number of features that I've built up over the years to make the process of building a clean XPages app easier. These range from small utility features like a flashScope object to larger frameworks such as the current versions of my controller and model frameworks.
