Django Dash 2009 Registration Is Open!

The 2009 Django Dash is now open for registration! The Dash is a 48-hour programming competition to build the best Django-powered website. People who want to compete should mosey on over to the registration page, signup for an account and start forming their teams. Make sure to read through the rules first.

I'm really excited as this year's Dash is shaping up to be really great. With an extra team member allowed per team and some tweaks to the third-party code guidelines, there's a little more flexibility to be had. Last year's entries were really good and I think this year's will be even better.

And a huge thank you to this year's gracious sponsors. Even though times are somewhat rougher this year than last, we have four more sponsors than last year (up from 6 to 10) and some really sweet prizes to boot. All of the sponsors have my appreciation for their donations.

Registration ends on May 23rd, so there are roughly three weeks to register. The Django Dash itself will be held on the last weekend of May, the 30-31st.

Finally, if you want to keep up to date on what's happening, the Django Dash has a Twitter feed, so feel free to either follow or grab the RSS.
