Pull request competition

Published on 2013-05-08

Us pirates don't like paying for things which is why we love Open Source software. But that doesn't mean we don't want to give back! With that in mind we'd like to give away 2 tickets for the next edition of ArrrrCamp in October.

What it takes to win

Our lawyer advised us not to enslave people to scrub the decks, so instead we're going to hand out the tickets to people who contribute to Open Source. We all appreciate a good pull request, just submit a link to one of yours here and enter a comment if you like. Please make sure your contact info on GitHub is up to date!

If you need some inspiration, check out the arrrrsome CodeTriage. Or you could rig Ruby to return your pull request because this is what we'll use to pick a winner:


There are no limits on the number of pull requests you can submit, as long as they are made between today and the 1st of August. Any Open Source project qualifies.

You have until the 1st of August to submit your entries, we'll announce the winners a week later.

Don't worry if you've already purchased a ticket, we will refund it if you win.

Happy coding, mateys!
