Do you know Node.js? If so, have you thought about joining the Node.js Knockout contest starting on August 27th?
It’s basically a 48-hour contest to see which team can create the most awesome Node.js application, as decided by a panel of judges. The contest rules explain all the details and as I write this post there are 321 teams entered in this year’s event. Teams can be virtual – and some are gathering in various locations around the world to hack in the same physical place. There is apparently still room to sign up, although it’s closing soon (8/20).
While I’m not personally joining this year, I’m looking forward to seeing what these teams come up with. It should be fun to see!
P.S. In full disclosure, I should note that Tropo.com, one of the services of my employer, Voxeo, is one of the sponsors of the Node.js Knockout.
Thanks for the mention! Since you aren’t competing, do you have any interest in judging?
