Ruby Inside Contest Winners Announced

By Peter Cooper / August 24, 2006

The entries and the numbers associated with them were shown in the last post, so choosing a winner is as simple as using 'rand'. For the first prize $100 drawing:

irb(main):001:0> rand(24) + 1
=> 19

1st prize of $100 goes to Duncan Beevers with Using Simile Timeline with Ruby on Rails Views. A well deserved win too, as it's a particularly cool demonstration of how to use a JavaScript / AJAX library to show timelines on your Web pages.

And for the second drawing:

irb(main):002:0> rand(6) + 1
=> 3

2nd prize of $15 goes to Tim Shadel.

Thanks for all of the entries folks, and I hope those of you who didn't win will still enjoy checking out the 24 great articles and resources created for the contest.

    Congrats to Duncan and Tim, and well done Peter. $115 seems like a pretty small price for 24 new resources for the Ruby and Rails world.
