Monetate Announces Open Source Developer Competition
“The goal of the Monetate Open Source Prize is to support development of an existing open source project or to provide a kickstart to a new open source idea,” said David Brussin, Monetate founder and CEO. “We have built our company on top of open source work such as Python, Linux, Nginx, Memcache, HAProxy, MySQL, Django and Google Closure Library, so it is only fitting that we at Monetate do our part to drive open source forward while at the same time supporting the Philly Tech community.”
According to Monetate, any project producing source code under an Open Source Initiative approved license is eligible to participate; however, the competition is only open to developers who live or work within 60 miles of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. "The Ultimate Developer Kick Start Package” valued at $5,000 will be awarded to the winning entry and includes a MacBook Pro, an Apple 27 inch LED Cinema Display, an iPad 2, a $300 Amazon gift card good for EC2 and books, plus a month’s supply of pizza and Mountain Dew.
All submissions must be received by May 11, 2011 no later than 11:59 PM EST.
