We're happy to announce the first Plugin Development Contest for IntelliJ
IDEA. You can get complete details at the official contest page:
Essentially, you have two months (September 1 to October 31) to create a
new open-source (Apache or BSD licensed) plugin for IntelliJ IDEA 5.1 or
6.0, or to improve an existing plugin. You have a chance to win prizes (cash
and software licenses) with the first prize of $5000. Also, everyone who
submits a non-trivial plugin will get a special contest T-shirt.
If you've never developed IntelliJ IDEA plugins, the following page should
be a good starting point for you:
If you have any questions regarding the contest or plugin development in
general, we'll be happy to answer them.
"Develop with Pleasure!"
