Many people probably think the PHP Throwdown has stalled, but it’s quite the contrary actually. We’ve been mulling over many things and have come to some conclusions. So if you’re interested, read on!
Judges. The judges for the competition have been decided, and you can see the full list on the Judges page. Don’t try bribing them; trust me, I’ve tried and it doesn’t work.
Categories. We’ve been lining up some pretty nice prizes and as such, we realize that some of you lesser beings may be tempted to go to the dark side and cheat your way to the top. Therefore, although we may or may not have decided on the final categories, we may or may not reveal that we may or may not be revealing them a few days before the contest. Any information you may or may not have regarding the categories can be officially disregarded from this point on.
Prizes. As I said, we’ve got some terrific prizes in the works, and I’ll be announcing them in a few weeks, so stay tuned.
Sponsors. A tremendously huge shout-out to JupiterHosting who has graciously allowed us the use of server space. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Elizabeth Naramore at info_at_phpthrowdown.com.
Registration. We’re going to be opening up registration after the first of the year, quite simply because I’m swamped at the moment. Stay tuned on this as well.
Da Rules. We’ve altered the rules a bit, so take a look. Yes, we actually have the power to do that… it’s good to be the king.
All that being said, we’re moving full steam ahead with the competition, so bear with us as we iron out some of the issues that stand before us. May the best coder win!
