Reminder: $41,000 Web Developer Competition

Scroll to top
Read Time: 2 mins

Folks - you have less than two weeks to finish up your item! Hurry up! How's it coming along? Let us know in the comments.

After months of planning, I'm pleased to introduce our $41,000 web developer competition on Nettuts+ and CodeCanyon. Officially launching today, we want you to...build something! Do a kick-ass job, and you'll win everything from cash, to an iPad 2, to the 3DS, to a seemingly never-ending string of subscriptions to amazing online services.

How's it Work?

  1. Build an item...

    We’re searching for kick-ass, premium plugins and mobile components at the moment. Think about what you personally have found yourself in need of. A Joomla events calender? A WordPress membership system, perhaps? What about a Titanium boilerplate to jumpstart your iPhone app?

    Well, get started building it!

  2. Submit to CodeCanyon

    When your item is complete, submit it to CodeCanyon. If you don’t yet have an author account, that's okay; take a few moments to sign up for a free account. You have until May 20th to get your item in!

  3. That's it!

    You’re done! Once your item is accepted on the marketplace, not only will you profit from each sale, but you’ll also be automatically entered into the competition! To the best comes the spoils!


We've gone all out in this competition to bring you prizes from some of the best companies in the world, including MediaTemple, GitHub, RuleFM, SpiderOak, Usability Hub, and many many more.
