Final Days For Hackontest Selection of Projects

Programming 7

maemst writes "The project selection phase of the Google-sponsored 24-hour programming contest Hackontest ends in two days. Until today, almost a thousand persons voted for new features in 57 open source projects. Currently sK1, TYPO3 and OpenLieroX, phpMyAdmin and Inkscape are on the top list. However, only the developers of three of them may participate in the competition on September 24/25, 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland. code_swarm animations of the top five projects show how previous development has evolved so far."

Why not go for it? (1)

Why would these devs be pulling out? Why not go for it?

I don't know about the rest... (2, Interesting)

.. but maybe the developers of OpenLieroX are too busy fending off lawsuits from Team 17.

Huh? No-one's pulling out - they're just not getting invited along. Only three projects get invited. Read the about page [hackontest.org] .

Not a whole lot of comments. (1)

I don't have much to add other than I think the phpMyAdmin is the better video. Yeah, I have no life. I watched most of all of them and all of the phpMyAdmin video. (It is on the second page if you didn't find it.)

This is I think, the fewest comments I've ever seen on a /. story.
I watched the Inkscape video, as it's the one application I'm familiar with, and I like it a lot.
One question, though, is what exactly is being visualized? e.g. what does it mean when one person's name moves from SW to NE?

I honestly haven't the slightest idea but what I do find interesting is that you watched and enjoyed a video for a project you were familiar with where I watched one that was based on something that I use daily and enjoyed it the most.

Appropiate Dutch proverb... (5, Funny)

MisterBlueSky (1213526) | more than 6 years ago | (#24394575)

Here in Holland, we have an ancient old Dutch Proverbe for situations like this: Hajje knarre najje spruitjespap narre hopjesvla. It means: Sometimes the only reply which makes sense is quoting an ancient old Dutch saying.
