It's 59DaysOfCode #thecompetition as you've always known it: Code. Community. Competition. Have an idea that's been sitting on the shelf for a while? Want to get a little creative? Want to wow the world with your ingenious invention? This is your realm.

Why Classic?

#thecompetition in its traditional format is near and dear to many, and we don't want to take that away from you! #thecompetition Classic is the origin story for many in the Valley, and we want to keep the tradition going. This is the old-school, nostalgic, original open-opportunity-to-create-something-all-on-your-own competition.

Zero-Code entries are idea-stage projects that you will have 59 days to build. These are the projects that do not yet have written code. Documentation may be pre-existing, but no pre-written code is allowed.

In progress

Ideas that are in-progress or have been left on the shelf to gather dust have the chance to show themselves in this category. These projects may already be out on the market for a limited audience, or a work-in-progress altogether.
