React.js Conf tickets, everyone wants them but we only have space for 400 people, and that includes speakers, organizers and everyone’s proud parents and grandparents! If you are into speaking and have time before December 13th, you should submit a 30 minute talk or 5 minute lightning talk proposal. If you’re more into writing than speaking or coding, ReactJSNews is giving away 1 ticket for the best blog post submission. But you probably like programming, so React Native Newsletter & Exponent are giving away two tickets for the best React Native apps made with Exponent! Of course, if you like speaking, writing and programming you should do all of the above.
Details of the contest
- You submit the URL of your app by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter by tweeting at @notbrent. This doesn’t mean you have to stop working on it, you can continue to ship new updates as you please!
- There are four prizes to be won:
- (2) React.js Conf 2016 tickets (this does not include flight or accommodations)
- (1) A signed portrait of a React.js team member holding a signed portrait of @vjeux from our last contest. This is a one of a kind React.js recursive photo!
- (1) Exclusive super-awesome hoodie with the Exponent logo, currently only owned by the Exponent team and VIPs.
- The app with the most unique users wins the Exponent hoodie, all other prizes are distributed based on public voting.
- Everyone gets their app linked to in the newsletter.
- December 10: Contest announced
- January 20: Polls open at midnight PST! (well, 11:59PM PST on January 20th, I'm bad at words sorry)
- Polls close exactly 7 days after the first vote was cast
How to get started
- Visit http://exponentjs.com/ and follow the steps to get set up. It shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes.
- The documentation for the current version of React Native supported by Exponent (0.15) can be found at http://exponentjs.github.io/react-native/docs/getting-exponent.html
- Use the hello-world-redux Exponent starter project if you're into that.
- Join us on Slack if you have even the weirdest dumb question.
- Build something awesome
- Brag about it to your friends and family so they use your app and vote for it
Some ideas for apps you can make
- A better Pomodoro timer than this one that I built
- A small game like Floaty Plane
- A client for your favourite site like HackerNews-React-Native
- An app for an upcoming conference
- A React Native version of Reddit mobile or your own billion dollar company like Reddit.
- An interactive article like one of those found in React Native for curious people
- A completed version of the Github Pulse mobile client that I started working on a few months ago.
- Who knows? I’m sure you have some fun ideas!
