In case you missed the announcement, we’re giving away a Verizon Galaxy S3 for writing obfuscated code in the BASH Obsfucation Contest. Official Entry and Rules are located in the forum.

Rules:

  1. Post Obsfucated BASH code within code tags. Example:
    #! /system/bin/bash
    # or #! /bin/bash is acceptable too.
    your code goes here
  2. Post the video above (not ready yet) or your entry to your favorite social media service.
  3. edit and link to your public social media share in your entry

Anyone may enter.  You don’t need to be in the USA to enter.  You don’t need to have Verizon service. Also, there is an incomplete project to get this device carrier unlocked. This device is worth $600, and we’re giving it away for the most illegible and cool BASH script.

So fire up your terminal emulator, and get to BASHing out some code.  You have until Sunday!
