jQuery Championship: Single-Elimination Tournament

jQuery NYC
14-15 Jul 2012 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , New York, US

If you are competitive by nature and feel that you have the chops to become the next World jQuery Champion this is the event for you!

There is a cash prize for each champion in each classification at the end of the Championship.

This is the single-elimination tournament that will determine who will move on the the quarterfinals and on the road to becoming the next champion.

In this tournament there will be 16 jQueryists who will compete for the title of World jQuery Champion in four classifications.  This will be the ultimate way to shine.

There will be a total of 64 participants - 16 competitors in four classifications.

There are four classifications:

  1. Featherweight (inexperienced beginner)
  2. Lightweight (experienced beginner)
  3. Middleweight (intermediate)
  4. Heavyweight (expert)

You can choose to compete in any of these classifications.  While it might be tempting to be titled a heavyweight Champion (or Champion of Champions) choose carefully as it is better to win in a classification that corresponds to your skill level than lose because you aimed too high.

Each classification will have a bracket chart that will be followed to identify the Champion for that classification.

All classification tournaments will be held concurrently with the same type of questions but with the difficulty levels adjusted for that skill level.

If you do not want to compete you can also just come to watch and cheer on!  RSVP to reserve a slot to come out and be a spectator as seats will be limited!

We are trying to get sponsors to put money in the pot towards the cash prize and I will personally get the pot started.  There will only be cash prizes for the ultimate champion in each of the four classifications.  The cash prize will be divided in percentages of the total pot:

Cash Prizes:

  1. Featherweight - 15%
  2. Lightweight - 20%
  3. Middleweight - 25%
  4. Heavyweight - 40%

Needless to say if you want to donate or sponsor towards the pot please let me know now.  If you are a business owner, representative of a business, or other for-profit entity, please help us make this an event to remember!  Any amounts are welcome!
