Pardon the shortness of this post, I simply wanted to remind those out there who follow this blog that I’m holding a contest to give away a very nice Alagad Swiss Gear laptop backback. To quote Vicky Rider of CodeBass fame, they’re “legendary”. All you need to do is make a first time contribution to an open source project and comment on it on this entry. The best first time contribution will be picked and that lucky person will get the backpack! The contest is open through the end of the year and, as of now, I’ve received precisely zero submissions.
So, go forth and contribute. Then report back! It’s that simple. You’ll be helping support the community of OSS developers and you just might get a really, really, nice backpack out of the deal!
Also, to try to drive a little interest in this contest, I’m holding a side contest for yet another Alagad bag. Simply tweet the following to enter and I’ll pick a random tweet the same day that this OSS contest ends. Here what you tweet:
Now I wish I’d never contributed to open source! #AlagadBag http://bit.ly/eJvDfi
Also – you may want to note that CodeBass is holding a contest to give away some swag to commemorate their MediaSlurp collaboration. I’ve donated an Alagad bag to their swag set. Get more info and learn how to enter their contest here.
