Show Us Your Threads! Contest

26 Feb 20072 min read
Who says learning threading isn’t fun? Take a break from solving problems / developing code and join us in a fun contest. Weekly gift cards will be given based on community voting. You could be our grand prize winner of an Intel® Core 2 Duo iMac* - with a 20” screen.

This article is in the Product Showcase section for our sponsors at CodeProject. These articles are intended to provide you with information on products and services that we consider useful and of value to developers.

It's All About Personal Expression!

You express yourself through solving problems and developing code, don't you? Well then, how about showing the Intel® Multi-core Developer Community who you really are? Take a break from learning threading techniques and let's have some fun. Just to relieve the everyday grind, the managers of the community are hosting an online fashion contest. Okay, we use the term fashion lightly… We want everyone to show us your passion for fashion – casual, formal, geeky, whatever (but let's try to keep it clean)!

What you need to do

It's simple. Just share a photo of you in your favorite threads (aka clothes). Add a short description. Your community peers will weigh in with their votes using the following criteria:

  • Fashion plate
  • Time Left You Behind
  • Tradeshow Attire (ok we know some of you only wear free shirts)
  • Great Sense of Humor

What you can win

It's really that easy! A $100 AMEX or Visa gift card goes to the entry with the most community votes per week. The totally awesome Intel Core 2 Duo Based iMac* with a 20" screen is the grand prize.

Act fast – the contest ends on March 26, 2007. The grand prize will be awarded by our Multi-core Developer Community Managers.

Show us your threads! Jump in and vote! Make a comment or two! This is all in good fun with a kick – the chance to win a new iMac PC. Click here to join.
