New Zealand rules! The 24 hour FullCodePress is a series of web competitions, a kind of Geek Olympics. Before there will be an international competition in 2008, they started with a trans-tasman challenge between New Zealand and Australia and during 24 hours yesterday and this morning, two web development teams had to build a website for a non-profit organization from scratch.

For New Zealand Steve Dennis (Enlighten), Zef Fugaz (Provoke), Alison Green (Shift), Peter Johnston (Sorted), Mark Rickerby (Coretxt), Thomas Scovell (Shift) and Jeffrey Wegesin (Xero) started as the Code Blacks and during the last endless hours they kept the world updated about the progress on the project via their blog, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. The result is a really good website for the Grampians Disability Advocacy Association in Victoria, Australia. Which is brilliant enough to win this competition! But the Aussies did a good job as well, their website for the Ripple Effect a charity working with schools to deliver projects that change lives of children and their community, is pretty good as well. Congratulations, Code Blacks, you did a great job!
