Rich Manalang, one of the regulars on the jQuery mailing list, took the initiative and with a little help has gotten the jQuery API posted up on gotAPI.com. If you haven’t been over to gotAPI, its a great online documentation resource that provides a comprehensive API listing for most popular programming languages and frameworks. Great job Rich!
Joshua Eichorn will be giving a talk about jQuery at the Pheonix azPHP user group tonight. You can get more details here:
Update: The contest is now closed! I would like to thank everyone for their submissions. We’ll begin the judging process very soon.
To encourage people to promote the jQuery project, and get as many people involved in the community as possible, we’re holding a contest to build a “Powered by jQuery” button. Having a nicely designed button will be a good way for jQuery users to build more awareness about the project, while having something that looks cool on your site!
- The contest will run until November 3rd. Winners will be announced November 5th.
- All entries must must be optimized for the web (8-bit PNG) and images should be no bigger than 173×31 (example).
- The jQuery team will have the right to the use the submissions anyway they wish. This will prevent any copyright issues in the future. The winner must also be able to provide a PSD (or AI) file so that the image can be maintained in the future.
- Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place submissions.
- The general jQuery community will do the final voting, moderated by John Resig, creator of jQuery, and Rey Bango.
- You should make use of the jQuery hat logo in your button (you’re free to re-draw it, as necessary). If needed, here’s a raw PSD of the hat logo.
- Second Place Prize: One Book – Foundations of Ajax
- Third Place Prize: $10 Cash to a PayPal account of your choosing!
The prizes will be shipped anywhere in the world via regular post.
All submissions should be made in the comment section of this posting via a standard hyperlink. Make sure that you provide a valid email address when submitting your entry.
This is your chance to really help expand the jQuery community by creating a top notch button that will get a ton of exposure. Good luck to everyone!
