Kiwi Team Code Blacks gear up for Geek Olympics
Web teams from Australia and New Zealand will compete in Sydney to build a fully-operational website for a non-profit organisation in 24 hours. The competition will be on Saturday 18 August 2007.

The FullCodePress 'site in a day' competition is also known as the 'Geek Olympics', a trans-Tasman event that is the first of its kind and will be followed by an international competition, to be held in Wellington, New Zealand, in February 2008.

The Kiwi team was announced on 16 July, the final seven selected from hundreds of applicants. Reflecting the Capital's reputation for creativity and innovation, all hail from Wellington - apart from Hamilton designer Steve Dennis.

The full team is:

. Steve Dennis (Enlighten) - Designer
. Zef Fugaz (Provoke) - User Experience /Information Architecture
. Alison Green (Shift) - All Rounder
. Peter Johnston (Sorted) - Writer
. Mark Rickerby (Coretxt) - Programmer
. Thomas Scovell (Shift) - Project Manager
. Jeffrey Wegesin (Xero) - HTML/CSS

Team Captain Thomas Scovell says the 'Code Blacks' will be going into the challenge with the attitude of a sports team.

"Rather than each of us just doing our bit we're all going to work together as a team and help each other out for the whole 24 hours. That's provided we can find enough good coffee in Sydney to get us through the weekend."

The team is currently working hard to refine their strategy, get to know each other, design that all-important t-shirt and secure sponsorship.

"The Aussie team is sponsored by Adobe so we are keen to get some big local names on board to support us," says Thomas. "We're open to offers!"
