General Assembly, .XYZ Tie On Registry Website Design Contest
Are you a web design wiz who would like to show off their web design chops to the world? LA's General Assembly and fellow Los Angeles company .XYZ are offering up a free domain name, website hosting, and General Assembly course credits to entrants to a new design contest, which challenges web designers to create a website based on the .xyz domain extension. According to .XYZ, General Assembly, and hosting company GoDaddy, they are offering up the chance to win a Macbook Air, Xbox One, Jawbone Jambox, Google Chromecast, and other prizes--plus, giving a free hosting account, .xyz domain, and those class credits--to students and alumni of General Assembly, USC, UCLA, UCI, LMU, or Pepperdine who submit a new website based on the new top level domain. The contest starts on January 9th, and runs through February 15th.
