OpenNTF is happy to announce the XSnippets
contests. The goal is to increase the quantity and quality of simple code
snippets in the new XSnippets app which was deployed at the end of last
year on OpenNTF.org.
The plan is to have XSnippets contests
on an ongoing basis (probably quarterly). Today OpenNTF launches the first
of these contests which will end at June 30th 2012. Contributors can win
prizes at a total of $400.
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 (today - April 17th) and the end
date (June 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
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
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.

OpenNTF Essentials available today!
Wed, Nov 20th 2013 1:27p Christian Guedemann We have made a lot of noise about OpenNTF
Essentials. Thanks to all that joined our webinar. It's really a good sign
of our community. Technically OpenNTF Essentials combines a set of projects
into a single updatesite and delivers this with all the example databases

It was hard to define our starting point. Will we displease people because
we have chosen the wrong projects? But it's a bit like doing a sightseein [read] Keywords: collaboration
