From Zero To Deployed Contest - Prizes Announced

Do you have what it takes to meet the challenge? We’ll make it worth it.

appharborYou may have noticed at the end of my last post I threw down the community challenge to get from zero to deployed faster than me.

The Challenge

My time was 13:48 to be from zero to deployed. Beat my time and show it in a video response. The person with the best time by March 15th @ 11:59PM CST will receive a prize.

Here are the links to the videos:

Let’s revisit those ground rules before I tell you what the prizes will be:

Ground rules:

  • .NET Application with a valid database connection
  • Start from Zero
  • Deployed with AppHarbor or an alternative
  • A timer displayed in the video that runs during the entire process
  • Video response published on YouTube or acceptable alternative
  • Video(s) must be published by March 15th at 11:59PM CST.
  • Either post the link here as a comment or on YouTube as a response (also by 11:59PM CST March 15th)

The Twilio t-shirt is PRICELESS! :) And we'll ship almost anywhere in the world.

My entry:

Run time is 5:50, although most of a minute is waiting for my slow hotel wifi to push the repo to appharbor.

Uses ASP.NET MVC 3, EF Code First, Ninject, and MvcScaffolding to build a working to do list site in less than 6 minutes.
