Raleigh, North Carolina – (The Hosting News) – March 6, 2006 – Web hosting directory and resource site, HostChart, is sponsoring the ”Programmer’s Challenge” this spring which will award over $10,000 in cash and prizes to the winner.
Contestants will vie for the prize by designing and building a website template. HostChart is currently looking for an organization or charity that needs a website to be the recipient of the template developed in the contest. The organization will provide its requirements, and the competition will be judged by the organization and a panel from sponsor companies.
According to HostChart President, Rodney Ringler, ”We plan to make this a regular event and develop competitive programming as a sport. There are competitive tours for cooking, video games, bass fishing, and ballroom dancing. Why not programming and graphic design? We are hoping to make this a regular competition circuit and have a deal in the works to make this first contest into a TV show.”
The Programmer’s Challenge will launch this spring and run for 6 weeks. The 5 finalists of the competition will be given first chance to compete in a timed and taped competition for the TV show. Each contestant will have 48 hours to complete the website project and their desktops will be recorded. This material will be used for the TV show.
