The World Organization of Webmasters (WOW) and IDG World Expo announced on Tuesday that the
WOW Iron Chef of Web Design Competition
will happen July 14 on the exhibit floor during
Macworld Conference & Expo Boston. The contest will pit competing Web design teams against each other as they design, code and deploy a working Web site for a non-profit group, complete with accompanying monitors that will display all the keystrokes and mouse clicks made by the competitors.
The teams will gain access to their workstations at 10:00 am that day and work until 2:30 pm, at which time they will present their sites and explain how they approached the challenge. The judges will announce the winner at 4:30 pm. Each team will have three members who must provide their own equipment and software; interested contestants can sign up for the competition at the WOW Web site. WOW will also run educational Web design sessions at Macworld Boston throughout the day on July 13 and July 15.
MacCentral and IDG World Expo are both owned by IDG.
