Awarding Points Overview

Prizes will be awarded in the following manner: The top 40 attendees with the highest point totals will be placed in a “pool” and assigned a number based on their place on the Leaderboard (first place = 1, etc.). Winners will be chosen via random number generator. Attendees can always check their status on the Leaderboard, which will be visible on the site during the event. 

*The goal of any attendee playing the game should be to finish in the top 40, while following the rules and spirit of the game of course.

Start and End Times

Points can be accumulated starting at 9:30 am EDT on Tuesday, March 28 on the virtual platform and the game will end at 5:00 pm EDT. Points cannot be accumulated after 5:00 pm EDT.

Winners Notified

Winners will be notified within 2-3 days following the end of Open Source 101. We’ll notify winners via email at the address used to register for the event.

Spirit of the Game – Can’t exceed 12,000 points to be eligible

*Please note, the intent of the game is to encourage “normal” activity at the event, not hyper activity and actions taken simply to accumulate points. As a result, point totals exceeding 12,000 will not be considered when determining winners. Again, the goal of the game is to encourage attendees to be active as they would an in-person event, but not take unnecessary actions simply to accumulate points.

A note about hacking / cheating 

While it is tempting for some to attempt to cheat the system and accumulate points unfairly, we sincerely ask that you refrain and resist the temptation. This directly violates the spirit of All Things Open and the open source community. Anyone guilty of hacking the system and/or cheating will be disqualified and banned from future All Things Open events.
