I’ve decided to award $1000 to the best contribution made to the PlayCanvas engine repo in January. You can find the engine repo here:
See Twitter announcement here:
(Please retweet to spread the word!)
Your PR (pull request) can be anything: an engine example, a new feature, a refactor of something, a bug fix, documentation improvements.
36 hours left to submit a pull request to win a cool $1000. That’s like a PS5 Disc Edition AND an Xbox Series X (but yeah, spend it however you like!)
Currently submitted PRs are:
https://github.com/playcanvas/engine/pull/2785 (by @LeXXik)
https://github.com/playcanvas/engine/pull/2767 (by NewboO)
https://github.com/playcanvas/engine/pull/2733 (by @LeXXik)
https://github.com/playcanvas/engine/pull/2698 (by @gameatp)
https://github.com/playcanvas/engine/pull/2673 (by @kungfooman)
If you’ve submitted a PR and don’t see it listed, let me know.
Some answers to common questions:
Can you submit more than 1 PR? Yes! As you can see, @LeXXik has already submitted two.
What makes a PR eligible? It must be opened sometime in January. It doesn’t need to have been merged.
My PR was closed without being merged - is it eligible? Yes! Because it’s the thought that counts.
Announcing the winner on Monday. Good luck!
I honestly didn’t expect my PRs to take part in the competition, as they were trivial. So, guys, don’t miss a chance for an easy cash grab
Me neither for 10 lines of code or so, I guess it comes down more to thanking a gesture of cooperation
Because it’s the thought that counts. as in Plato, a thought/idea is more real than the real world in a strange way
Here’s another PR submitted just in time!
So currently, it seems like we have 5 entrants.
5 hours and 15 minutes until the deadline!
Announcing the winner of the January Coding Challenge!
The $1000 goes to…
…for adding rolling friction support to the physics engine.
And if you submitted a PR but didn’t win, great effort, and we appreciate your contributions very much!
Oh! A pleasant surprise! Thank you!
Great award! Congratulations @LeXXik! You deserve it.
Congrats Love your games @LeXXik
Thanks ) I wish the event would have taken place in December though There was an amazing PR for a new area lights feature. It was a definite winner Hopefully Will make a new competition soon, so others may have a chance too.
Hopefully I might have a change probably not because im new though.
I can’t deny - @Mark_Lundin’s Area Lights PR would have won comfortably if it had landed in January. It was a really amazing contribution! But hey, rules are rules.
I will consider announcing another PR competition in the future.
