Edugeek Winners!

We have announced the winners of the Edugeek competition; a competition to come up with the most creative use of PaperCut’s print scripting.

I have not seen a more comprehensive winner since the All Blacks won the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Much like the final, there were only two major players; one of them had to win. Jack from Melbourne did an amazing job at making a script, even included a JSON Library!

Jack even commented “It’s a bit over engineered, but it wanted to play with JSON”. With the geekiest script I’ve seen in a while, it had to be the Edugeek winner.

Michael on the other hand, had a rather devious script that was used on unsuspecting students which made students guess a number out of 10. If they get the wrong number, their print job is redirected to a random printer in the school and they’re told to go find it…Evil person…I wonder what he could do with Raspberry Pi….

There is a one in ten chance you will see this screen.

Now the next problem is what we’re going to do with our third Raspberry Pi!…After carefully consideration, we’ve decided to give it away to a good cause. We found a group in Sydney that is looking at educating students on the uses of Raspberry Pis. Feel free to have a look at their website here: OzBerryPi. It looks like it will make it to a good home.

1st place: Jack

2nd place: Michael

3rd place: OzBerryPi

Thanks for all the fun. We would like to thank the Edugeek community and sorry about the Rugby World Cup joke, I’m sure England will do better in 2015 🙂

    I love the Russian Roulette entry. I can’t wait till April the 1st as I’m going to roll that one in my school. The students will love it…. I reckon I’ll have exactly 1 hour before I get a nasty call from the head teacher… but if it’s April the 1st, I’m sure I’ll pull it off 🙂
