UPDATE: Grooveshark is giving away not just 1 month, but 1 year of Grooveshark Anywhere to each participant in the May campaign. Thanks again.
If you’ve seen the latest version of Grooveshark you know they’re big fans of jQuery and jQuery UI. They want to show their support for jQuery UI and RewardJS by giving away a free year of Grooveshark Anywhere to each person that contributed at least 1 bug fix to jQuery UI during the month of May. Huge thanks!
RewardJS kicked off with a bang this week, awarding 4 prizes in as many days – an iPod Shuffle, a Flip Camera, a Nintendo Wii and a Kindle 3G. This is just our first RewardJS campaign, and it’s running for the full month of May. Congratulations and thanks to our first four winners as well as our first full-week sponsor, Bocoup.
$1337 in prizes for fixing just 4 bugs!?
How it works
Fix a bug. Get a prize.
- Daily prizes ($50-400 each) to the developer that closes the most bugs each day, Mon-Fri
- Weekly prizes ($750-1250 each) to the developer that closes the most bugs each week, Mon-Sat
- Monthly grand prize ($2000-3000) to the developer that closes the most bugs in the 4-week campaign.
We’re kicking off RewardJS by running a campaign to see how many jQuery UI bugs we can get fixed in the month of May. Check out the Prizes to see if you find any that are particularly motivational for you. Already have an iPad 2? Don’t let that discourage you – opt for a gift card instead!
If you’re interested in sponsoring a RewardJS campaign, see the Rules and Prizes Calendar and contact us (email firstname.lastname@example.org or mention @rewardjs on twitter). We still have a few openings for one-day and one-week sponsors for our first campaign, May 2011 – jQuery UI bugs.
