Plugin Contest (aka how I will beat @Norcross like a drum)

So it has been awhile since I last developed a WordPress Plugin for free. Sure I have done dozens for clients, but it has been awhile since I have given one away. But soon all of that will change. Starting April 1st I am entering myself into a two man competition with my buddy Andrew Norcross. Basically I am looking for a fun way to start programming for the public again with a competitive edge for motivation. The original inspiration for this came from Andrew watching one of my favorite movies and tweeting about it.

Here are the rules:

  • Contest begins April 1st.
  • No rules on functionality, purpose, etc. Just has to be a working plugin.
  • The plugin has to be completed and in the WordPress repository by midnight on April 30th.
  • Once completed, we will allow a week for voting.
  • Loser pays winner $1.
  • That’s pretty much it.

Wish me luck! On April 30th Andrew and I will be tweeting and emailing a link where you the public can vote so make sure to pay attention to this blog, Andrew’s blog and both our Twitter accounts. @joehall & @norcross


  1. Bring it. That’s all I’m gonna say.

  2. Clash of the titans. I for one am stoked to see what you-all come up with. Got my voting finger poised! 🙂

  3. Interesting. All it has to do is work, *and* be popular. Good luck you guys. May the best man win!

  4. Any updates at to what the plugin is?
