RailsRumble 2014

Vienna.rb Meetups Friday July 25, 2014 @ 16:14 • 1 months ago

photovienna.rb

Last year we loosely organized a RailsRumble / encouraged you guys to join the worldwide hackathon. For this year's edition sektor5 offers desk space to vienna.rb members looking to join in on the fun. But of course you can work from anywhere you'd like!

As a contestant, your team has exactly 48 hours to develop your web based application during the Rumble. The competition kicks off at 12:00AM UTC / 00:00 UTC on October 18th, 2014 and will end at 11:59PM / 23:59 UTC on October 19th, 2014.*

Let us know by RSVP-ing that you're interested in joining the event - and form teams in the comments! Happy hacking <3



Now of course there are *some* rules (http://blog.railsrumb...), like: all applications must be built using Ruby on Rails or another Rack-based Ruby web framework. Teams must be comprised of between one and four individuals and to be eligible, teams must register during the defined registration period (Oct. 6th - 12th). You don’t need to hack Ruby or Rails to participate. We encourage front end designers to get involved too! 

Your team will be provided with a free app and Git repository, courtesy of Heroku that you must use. The *.r14.railsrumble.com subdomained URLs RailsRumble provides are the official URLs judges will be sent to.

Third party software, in the form of RubyGems are allowed, even encouraged, but should be documented. Stock photography, icon sets, and publicly available templates are allowed. Teams are prohibited from commissioning or otherwise paying for any content that is created specifically for the application as opposed to being publicly available for everyone’s use.

What you do with your source once the competition is over is up to you. You are not to reveal any user information to any third party, except when required by law. If you choose to continue developing your application after the Rumble has ended, you are required to notify users of any changes in your privacy policy, so they can remove the information if they so choose.

A set of competitor judges (to qualify as a competitor judge, you must ship an application by the end of the competition) will pick their favorite applications and rank them. At the end of the competition, these rankings will be combined to find the top 10 overall winners, ranked 1 through 10. Additionally, a special “Best Solo” award will be given based on rankings. Separate from judges, any member of the public may also pick their favorite application. At the end of the competition, the application that receives the most favorites from the public will receive a special “Public Favorite” award.


* You can, of course, work on the concept for your application before the competition starts, including paper and / or digital mockups of the user interface and database entity diagrams. However, no production assets of any kind can be created until the start of the official competition period.
