Backstage Blog August 9th, 2013 Contests Open Source Ruby Win a trip to the Barcelona Ruby Conference By Erik Michaels-Ober

Barcelona Ruby Conference September MMX111

The lineup for BaRuCo 2013 looks amazing, with speakers such as Aaron Patterson, Katrina Owen, Sandi Metz, and Ruby’s inventor Yukihiro Matsumoto. The conference is currently SOLD OUT, but we have one extra ticket… and it could be yours!

If you win the ticket, SoundCloud will fly you from anywhere in the world to Barcelona, Spain and put you up in a nice Catalonian hotel.

How do you enter to win?

It’s simple. Just create a command-line interface in Ruby that uses the SoundCloud API. You can use the SoundCloud Ruby SDK, but this is not a requirement. The only constraints are that it is:

  1. a command-line interface,
  2. written in Ruby,
  3. integrated with SoundCloud,
  4. and totally awesome!

The author of the most creative CLI that uses SoundCloud will win the BaRuCo ticket.

To submit an entry, push your code to GitHub and send an email that includes a link to the repo to e@soundcloud.com by 12:59:59 UTC on August 26th, 2013. We will announce the winner on August 30th.

You must be at least 18 years old to enter and allowed to travel to Spain (sorry Edward Snowden).

Entries will be judged by a team of SoundCloud staff. If you have any questions, email me.
