Tenderlove Making

rubycommitters.org design contest!


Alright, now that the formalities are out of the way, LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS! Some of you may or may not know, I joined the Ruby core team in October 2009. I am very proud to be a member of ruby-core. However, I have noticed that the Ruby core team does not have an awesome website like the Rails core team.

To rectify this situation, I registered a domain: rubycommitters.org. Unfortunately, my design skills are… sub-par. I would like to fist fix this by having a contest. I would like you to code the design for rubycommitters.org.

How do I enter?

Just fork the rubycommitters.org project on github, follow the instructions in the README, and make the site look good! When you’re done, send me a pull request.

How many times can I enter?

As many as you want. However, you can only win one place.

When is the due date?

You must send me the pull request by January 19th, 23:59:59 PST.

When will winners be announced?

I will announce winners by January 21st, 23:59:59 PST. Once I’ve decided, I’ll email the winners to get their PayPal information and transfer the money Love Bucks.

What are the prizes?

My employer pays me in Tenderlove Cash (from here on referred to as “Love Bucks”), so the prize will be in Love Bucks. Fortunately for all of us, Love Bucks exchange with the US Dollar at a 1:1 ratio. So I will send you your prize via PayPal in the form of US Dollars.

First Place: 200 300 Love Bucks (in the form of US Dollars) Second Place: 100 Love Bucks (in the form of US Dollars)

All entrants will win a hug from me that is redeemable next time we meet each other!

How will entries be judged?

By me, however I want. I’ll probably ask the intertubes for help, but I have the final say.

Why is the prize so low?

These Love Bucks are coming out of my own wallet! Give me a break!


Since I announced I needed help last weekend, already 9 people have started working, so you’d better get cracking!

I am proud to be a member of the Ruby core team, I’m proud to be involved in the Rails development team, and most of all I’m proud to be a member of the best development community in the world. Thanks to everyone that makes being a member of the Ruby community so awesome!


@mariozig has graciously offered to up the ante. He has donated 100 Love Bucks to the first place winner! That’s a total of 300 Love Bucks for the person who wins first place! Awesome!!!
