A competition will be hosted by in conjunction with MSC Open Source Conference 2009 and will be held in Berjaya Time Square Hotel and Convention Centre Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from May 31st (Sunday) to the 3rd of June (Wednesday) 2009.

We would like to invite all the members from and anyone who is interested to join the committee. The contest will be held 2 weeks before the actual event that ends on the 31st of May 2009 and the winner will be announced on that same day.

The winner of the competition will be granted cash prizes totaling RM 10,000.00 for all 5 categories. The prize money is sponsored by Microsoft Malaysia.

For now, will choose 20 applications in 5 categories
1. Forum
2. Groupware
3. Blog
4. eCommerce
5. CMS/Portal

All the applications above will be asked to support the main database of MSSQL 2008. The applications are yet to be determine but in my opinion, it would be related to Wordpress, Drupal and PHPBB.

The terms and conditions for the approved application must be the support of the main database for MSSQL. There may be a training or free courses that will be held in KL on “HOW TO” use PHP with the support of MSSQL and also on how to connect PHP with MSSQL using the existing drivers in PHP or PDO. (These workshops will also be sponsored by Microsoft)

The first steps required are:
1. Participation of Volunteers
2. Suggestions for related applications. Please note again that there are 20 application in 5 categories.

With this I hope that all the members of will contribute ideas to the competition and help in raising the image of On MDeC side, participation can also improve opportunities for funding future developers. I will be updating the community from time to time with regards to this competition within this forum.

Please start you discussion. TQ

p/s: all the source code in the competition will be contributed back to the community (AND REMAIN OPEN SOURCE)
