Feel like whipping up a Thematic child theme that could earn you $240.00? If so, you should check out the Instinct blog to read up on the details regarding the Thematic Child theme challenge. The first person to submit a Thematic child theme which functions comparably and looks like the simpleCart demo site will win the cash prize as well as a profiled spot on the top of the site. Dan Milward of WP e-Commerce notes the reason behind the challenge:
The main goal here is to make more e-Commerce themes available for WordPress e-Commerce users and help profile your skills.
The rules for the challenge are simple:
- Must look the same (or a nice variation)
- Must use Thematic
- Must use WP e-Commerce 3.7 Beta 4 or Higher
- Must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before the end of the weekend
This is a great idea by Dan and company. Good luck to all of the challengers. It will be interesting to see if this picks up speed and how many entries he receives to warrant future challenges.
