I've organized the Clojure Cup a couple of times now: The inaugural event in September 2013 and the second edition in September 2014.
I'd very much like to see a Clojure Cup 2015 this fall, but the time has come for me to hand over the reins to someone else. So, I'm looking for someone to take on the ownership and organizing duties of Clojure Cup.
As the new owner of Clojure Cup, you will run the event as you see fit, though I'm of course willing to advise based on my experience of the two previous years. The gig includes things like:
- Coming up with the exact rules, size, schedule, judging model, prizes, and other aspects of the contest
- Sponsor acquisition
- Judge acquisition
- Making noise on the web, and other "marketing"
- Supporting contestants throughout the event
- The technical infrastructure of the contest (mostly the website and its backend systems)
It's a bunch of work, but it's also very rewarding. You get to do something for the Clojure community and have a lot of fun in the process.
If you're interested or have questions, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop a comment here.
