Afternoon Code People and Web Standards groups:

I recently heard about this event taking place on March 24th-25th
weekend, the Overnight Website Challenge. Basically you get together a
team to build a website or app for a non-profit over a 24 hours
period. I thought it would be really cool if we could put together a
combined code people / web standards team to compete. It is a
competition and the best site wins a prize, but hey, everyone wins
when you help a non-profit!. The competition is taking place on the St
Paul campus. Much more information is available on the event site.

February 27th is the deadline for team registration. If you are
interested, fill out this form below!

If there is enough interest, we could consider splitting teams by
preferred languages, etc. The max team size is 10. Be sure and request
sig other/spousal approval ;-). Try and respond by February 13th, so
we can work out any complications before the deadline.

Contact me with questions or additional info I may have missed on the form.
