Mozilla Design Patterns Contest

Thursday October 14th, 1999

The "Design Patterns in Mozilla" contest is now underway. Find and document as many design patterns as possible in the Mozilla code, with the chance to win a copy of "Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software" by Gamma et. al. signed by the authors and a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.com.

Visit the contest rules page to learn more. It goes into detail regarding the two phases of the contest, the submission rules, the source you need to use, and the prizes.

This is not an official contest, but an incentive program for developers, and is being organized and run by the contest jurors. See the contest rules for more details.

Thanks go to Heikki Toivonen of Citec (creators of Doczilla) for organizing the contest. Good luck, and start hunting.

This, by the way, is a great book for OO developers. It's not a bible, nor is it a cookbook with recipes for all of your programming needs; but it is a great, tight reference. Whether or not you get it signed by the authors, if you hack big things in C++ (*cough*mozilla*cough*) you should have this book under your pillow at night.
