Full Code Press is a competitive charity event held annually by the awesome folks who run Webstock. The 2010 event is coming up in June and Xero is delighted to be a sponsor. The competition involves national teams of top web designers from the United States, Australia and New Zealand. On 19 June, each team must design and build a charity web site within 24 hours.

Team USA is new to the event and they’re coming heavy, with a rock star line up of designers and developers including Jason Santa Maria and Liz Danzico.

In addition to sponsorship of the event:

  • Each charity will get a free lifetime subscription to Xero
  • Each member of the winning team will get 1 year free subscription to Xero
  • Special awards will be given to team members with “notable character and talents”

As part of the fund raising, there are several public events happening here in Wellington on Thursday 17 June:
