Do you have a project that you are working on for the Common Crawl Code Contest that is not quite ready? If so, you are not the only one. A few people have emailed us to let us know their code is almost ready but they are worried about the deadline, so we have decided to extend the deadline through the holiday weekend.
Four extra days to enter the code contest! With the long weekend, you could get started today and have plenty of time to build something cool. Take a look around our wiki for information about the data, the Quick Start Amazon AMI, the Quick Start build from Github, and a page of Inspiration and Ideas. Playing with Common Crawl data would be a super fun weekend project and the prize package is great.
