Much ado about scripting, Linux & Eclipse: card subject to change


EclipseCon 2009 T-shirt Design Contest, Part 2: Some Ideas To Get You Started

With just over a month left in the EclipseCon '09 T-shirt design contest, I'm disappointed to report we've had no submissions yet.

So, to get the ball rolling and hopefully avert a fashion crime this time around, here are a few submissions of my own for you to consider and riff on. (If you can't read the small print, it says "* - Frequently Updated Deliverables".)

Make custom shirts at Zazzle

Get yourself a free Zazzle account (all it takes is an email address and a few minutes) and you can customize these with your own text, images, and fabrics. Then, submit a link to your gallery in bug 256495, and you'll be entered. If you tag your creations with "eclipsecon09" they will appear in rotation in the widget above.

Note: after creating a design in Zazzle, your new offering will take a few minutes to appear in your gallery, and several minutes more to be shown publicly.

Oh, and don't be afraid to submit things you aren't sure are any good. The winner of the last contest wasn't sure his submission was good enough... and then ended up winning! So trust your instincts and submit something today!

Here's a few ideas I've thought of but haven't had the time (or skills!) to render -- feel free to borrow something.
