Share your ideas to the WordPress Plugin Competition 2.5

May 19, 2008 | No Comments Yet

The WPCandy team is asking for your ideas for their entries to the WordPress Plugin Competition 2.5.

If your plugin gets chosen, we’ll give you credit inside the code and with a post here linking back to your blog. Remember though, your idea can’t be something that already exist! It has to be totally new and of course, it’s going to be GPL.

Even better is that should they win the contest, they’ll give away the prize to one of their readers! Great way for everybody in the WordPress community to participate in this plugin competition.

Join the WordPress Plugin Competition 2.5

May 1, 2008 | 2 Comments

Weblog Tools Collection announced an all-new WordPress plugin development contest. It will run from May 10 to July 10. Standard rules apply, such as the code must be licensed with GPL. No word yet on the prizes, but that should come along soon.

I think this is a great way for Filipinos to get recognized for their coding efforts, and knowing how big WordPress is in this country, it shouldn’t be too hard to convince fellow Pinoy bloggers to join!
