I love screencasts. I love them at least enough to create 16 of them this year. That's why when James Tauber announced that the Pinax Project would be having a screencast competition, it made me very very happy!
Pinax is already a great aide for those who want to build a website with a great deal of functionality in a short period of time. If you haven't checked it out yet, I really hope that you do. It tries to take the best of breed Django applications and glues them together with minimal configurable code and a set of common templates and conventions.
One area that Pinax could be better about, however, is documentation. We're working on it, but it still has a bit to go. That's one of the reasons why this contest is so great. By entering a screencast into the contest, you are really helping the Pinax community out a lot.
The best part about this contest, however, is that there are prizes! One prize, $100 at Amazon, will go to the very best screencast. A second prize, $40 at Amazon, will go to the second best screencast. As of this writing, there are no entries. So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the contest details page and enter your screencast today!
