Hey, all-star devs of D.C.: Are you ready to bet your coding skills against a total of $50,000? Yes, you read that right. Technical.ly is helping to organize a coding competition with one of the biggest cash prizes in the country, and it all starts this weekend.

{OpenBracket, designed to bring attention to the tech scene in Delaware, begins with an open, online coding competition on the platform HackerRank. This part of the competition runs Oct. 15-17 (this weekend!) and features a $10,000 top prize.

But that’s not all. On Nov. 5, 100 finalists from the HackerRank competition will be invited to Wilmington (expenses paid) to compete for another $15,000 (plus smaller prizes for other top finishers). This IRL portion of the competition will run right into the second annual Delaware Innovation Weeka further reason to celebrate and explore the Delaware tech scene.
