BitNami Contest now open to Ruby and Python apps

We are holding a bi-weekly contest for deciding which apps we should be adding to the BitNami library.  Initially, it was restricted to PHP-based web applications. The first winners were TestLink and PhpCompta (still in the process of being packaged). We are happy to announce that you can now also vote for Ruby and Python web applications.

Each selected project will get free native installers, virtual machines and Amazon Cloud Images that will be kept up to date periodically. They will also get access to the hundreds of thousands of end users and developers that visit our site every month. An streamlined installation process and the extra exposure from BitNami tends to significantly raise the awareness of the winning project.

Take a minute to decide which PHP, Ruby or Python web application is packaged next by visiting our contest page.  Once you have voted, remember to share via the Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus buttons to encourage your friends to do the same. Good luck!
