Codaroos victorious but everyone a winner on the day

20 June 2010 | admin | 27 Comments

And like that, more than 24 hours of grueling magic comes to an end. The Codaroos from Australia, after a moment of confusion about what being in the yellow corner meant, were awarded the FullCodePress 2010 trophy from SitePoint’s Sarah Taylor, as the overall winner.

As well as handing out lifelong subscriptions for Xero to the three non-profits, and year-long subscriptions to the Codaroos, judge Phillip Fierlinger had surprises for the teams in the form of badges.

The ‘WHAT COULD GO WRONG’ award for ambition went to the Code Blacks for their integration of a Facebook login. They also got the ‘B1NARY SOLO’ award for most l337 syntax.

Team USA took the ‘!IMPORTANT’ award for “Most awesome in IE6″ which will no doubt help them sleep at night.

Meanwhile, the Codaroos also scooped the ‘I MADE IT LICKABLE’ for the most gratuitous use of flair (drop-shadows and rounded corners were cited), the ‘CLICK OKAY TO CANCEL’ award for the most empathetic design, and finally the (painful to write) ‘ITS YOU’RE AWARD’ for most anal content.

At the end of the day, it was a victory not only for Australasia, but also for everyone involved. Three worthwhile organisations now have brilliant websites that will have a huge impact on how they operate, 18 people got to hone their skills in a super high pressure environment, and now the organisers and volunteers can go home and sleep. Everybody wins this year, and we’ll see you all again next year.
