j!-over Birthday contest

A year of work, commitment and consent.

First of all we want to say thanks to all of you, who supported our project. As we started with the basic idea of j!-over, we did not expect such an engagement from the community. Very soon the non-German-speaking Joomla! community was involved and we offered our project also in other languages. Thus we quickly were able to find sponsors who where willing to support our project and finally we got the award as "Innovation of the Year". Yes, the time went fast.

Now we want to give something back to you and we still need you, sending us overrides. That's why we officially start our "j! -over Birthday contest" today!

What is the j! -over Birthday contest?

We spoke to Yireo (Jisse Reitsma), known as the author of the book "Programming Joomla plugins". We are very happy, he agreed on providing 5 copies of his outstanding book as sponsorship and we are happy to give them to you. Doesn't that sound great?

How do I participate in the lottery?

Quite simply, you only need to submit a new template override. It does not matter when, how many and in what quality the override was provided. Anyone who has supported the project with at least one override is automatically eligible to win. Have we piqued your interest?

When is the deadline?

All overrides that are submitted until 30th of April 2016 participate on the prize draw. But for now: start coding!

How does the lottery work?

Each submitted template override including the author will be written on a piece of paper and given into the lottery pot. An author of several overrides, therefore has a greater chance that one of his overrides is drawn. If an author is drawn twice, the second one will be skipped. We want to distribute the books fairly, so each drawn author gets only one book. The draw will be filmed without comments and the video will be shared via Youtube and on our website. You lose precious time!

I would like to participate, but I own the book already!

If this is the case, you can of course submit the override and let us know. This should not hold you back from submitting overrides. We thank you very much!

We hope for active participation and wish all participants good luck.

And the J.O.S.C.A.R. goes to...
