At your lanyard, you'll find a card with all our partner's logos. Visit as many partners as possible during the conference, get them to each make a hole in your card (just like the old computer punchcards), and deliver the card to the javaBin stand at the end of the conference. Remember to vote for the best stand at the card as well.
The four winners of the 2014 javaBin competition got a Pebble smart watch and a cool Game of Codes t-shirt. The winners was: Eirik Luka, Espen Grønli, Knut Erik Borgen & Torgeir Ous.
The punch cards, the punchers, the fun!
The competition we held before JavaZone was announced in a typical geeky fashion: not at all. You really had your work cut out for you if you wanted to participate. In our main JavaZone Movie this year, Game of Codes – a song of bytes and wire, we included a "scroll" with some cryptic code on it. To confuse you, we made the actors say it was Java code. The most clever of you of cource understood that this was blasphemy, it really was pure Clojure code!
The clojure code you had to compile to win
At the end of the day, some of you compiled it, sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as the running code told you to do, and presto: three of the clever human compilers won a full JavaZone 2014 ticket!
Congrats to the winners: Anders Furseth, Albrecht Schmidt & Alexander Sagen.
