Code Blitz! Win 50% more this month

There’s a record number of software development challenges up on CloudSpokes right now, running through the the end of the month.

We’re a little giddy with all the activity, so we’re hosting our first ever Code Blitz: The top two competitors will win an extra 50% on top of their winnings, and any member who wins their first challenge by the end of this month gets an extra $200!

The challenges posted this weekend are on fire. We’ve got about 28 ongoing challenges, with about $30,000 up for grabs through the end of the month:


Here's the details. Any challenge which ends through 05/31/13 is eligible. A list of the challenges involved in this blitz are at the bottom of this post (and note that more might be added in), but first the rules:
From 05/22/13 through 05/31/13, we will pull the top two leaders by POINTS won for all challenges by end date. Note that [Points = Dollars won]. For example, if you win $1,000 on an eligible challenge, that will equate to 1,000 points towards this challenge.

There will be two winners chosen. Each winner will receive an additional 50% bonus on top of whatever earnings they received during the course of this Code Blitz. For example, if the top winner by points has won $5,000 through challenges, that winner will receive an additional $2,500 Code Blitz bonus for a total of $7,500!

As well - any member who wins their first challenge (1st or 2nd place with monetary winnings) during this blitz will receive an additional $200. Note that if you’ve won a First Time Submitter challenge previously, but no other challenges, then you are still eligible for this additional bonus. For example, if a new member wins $1,000 in their first challenge, that winner will receive an additional $200 Code Blitz bonus for a total of $1,200!
We already have a few members out in front given that challenges are closing right now in the timeframe posted. We'll be posting the leaderboard periodically on this blog, so stay tuned for more:


Current challenges involved are below - subject to additions as new challenges are added.
