WebEdge Wars -- Web designers vie for $10K purse

It had to happen sooner or later -- Web design and development has been turned into an extreme sport. WebEdge Wars is coming to Austin, Texas this December.

The event's coordinators have staked a prize purse of US$10,000, and are now accepting team entry submissions to participant in the event. It's being billed as a "spectator event and real-time Web design and implementation competition." The folks producing WebEdge Wars want "to introduce the general public to the horrors and excitement of Web development."

"Young kids and old-timers with the battle scars of numerous projects, constantly face the stress caused by impossible time lines, the minefields of vague requirements and the shock of bad food at irregular hours just so you and I can enjoy surfing the Web," said WebEdge "commander" Carl de Cordova. "WebEdge Wars will pit the best against the best and is sure to be excruciating good fun to watch for techies and non-techies alike."

Participants comprising five teams will be selected by entries received before October 11, 2002. Once they're assembled, each team will be given an assignment that will be kept top secret until the beginning of the event. Then they'll have 25 hours to plan, design and execute a solution. To help maintain dramatic tension, video crews and a live audience will be on hand to witness the trials and tribulations of each Web development team.

The first place prize is valued at $10,000. It'll be awarded to the best team, as judged by a panel of experts and audience voting.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
