In the Heat of the Code is a coding contest supported by the UNESCO to involve new contributors in Open Source projects. Participating projects are:
1. The Open Event Orga Server using Python/flask.
2. The SUSI.AI repositories with a focus on the SUSI.AI Android App and SUSI Messenger Bots, and
3. The loklak repositories with a focus on loklak search with AngularJS.
The contest runs until 3rd February 2017. Grand prize winners will be invited to present their work at the FOSSASIA Summit at the Science Centre Singapore from March 17th -19th 2017 and will get up to 450 USD in travel funding to attend, plus a free speaker ticket.
Our jury will choose three winners from the top 10 contributors according to code quality and relevance of commits for the project. The jury also takes other contributions like submitted scrum reports and technical blog posts into account, but of course awesome code is the most important item on the list. Other participants will have the chance to win vouchers to attend Open Tech events in the region and will get certificates of participation. Sign up here now.
A team of over 30 mentors and jury members from 10 different countries supports participants of the contest.
Participants should take the time to read through the contest FAQ and familiarize themselves with the introductory information and Readme.md of each project before starting work on an issue.
