ActiveState is pleased to sponsor this year's  Django Dash 2010, a 48-hour competition for Django enthusiasts to "flex and show off their coding skills".

Registration: August 1 - 7
Competition: August 14 - 15
Winners Announced: August 31

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly and DjangoDash is a perfect showcase - an intense 48 hour deadline will push developers to test the limits of their ingenuity to deliver the coolest apps possible.

DjangoDash is a chance for Django enthusiasts to show off  their coding skills and their ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines!  It's also a cool way of showing of how easy it is to do rapid web application development with Django. 

Participants have 48 hours from start to stop to produce the best Django app they can and have a little fun in the process.

The DjangoDash has a few simple rules:

  • Nothing Gets Built Ahead Of Time
  • 48 Hours To Build
  • Max Team Of 3
  • Your Choice Of Git Or Mercurial
  • Your Entry Is Open Source
  • Any Third Party Code Is Fine (But Affects Your Score)
  • You Must Use Pip Requirements Or Buildout

ActiveState has donated copies of Komodo IDE to the winners and there are lots of other cool prizes too! 

So find some friends, think up a great idea, sign up and join the party! 
And even if you aren't competing you can follow along  on irc.freenode.net at #djangodash.
