Share Your IntelliJ IDEA Passion to Win a Free JAX London Pass!

Do you like IntelliJ IDEA? Do you enjoy attending developer conferences? Do you live in the UK?

We’re not asking that without a reason.

We have 10 passes to the upcoming JAX London conference that is scheduled to be held in London, UK, on Septeber 27-29. Each of the 2-day passes that we’re giving away is worth £549. We’d like to share them with you, the people who love our products.

All you need to do for a chance to get a free JAX London pass is create and share a short screencast about 3 things that you love about IntelliJ IDEA or some other of JetBrains IDEs.

We’ll pick 10 winners and provide them with a promotion code that will enable them to visit JAX London absolutely free of charge!

Update! The contest is extended until September 16!

With this contest, we’re mostly targeting UK developers but if you live elsewhere and you’re willing to land in London on above dates, you’re very much welcome to take part!

Contest Rules:

  1. You publish your screencast (or several screencasts, if you will.) at JetBrains TV not later than September 9 September 16. Please use your JetBrains Account to log in there.
  2. We choose best submitted screencasts via internal vote.
  3. We announce the 10 winners on September 17 and provide them with free JAX London passes.
  4. We will publish some selected screencasts (mentioning the authors) on a dedicated resource.


  1. JetBrains TV accepts videos in the following file formats: mp4, mpeg, avi, mpg, wmv, flv, and mov. Make sure to export your video to one of these formats.
  2. Publish your screencast to a channel that corresponds to the product it’s about: IntelliJ IDEA, TeamCIty, etc.
  3. Make sure to mark your screencast with tag “JAX 2010 Screencast Contest”.


  1. Silent screencasts are fine but we’d prefer voiceover.
  2. Use 4:3 aspect ratio for better publishing quality.
  3. Recommended resolutions: 1024*768 or 800*600.
  4. Try to limit screencast duration to 5 minutes.

You are free to create your screencasts using any screencasting tool (Camtasia, Captivate, Jing – hey, there are lots of them).

By the way, we’re also raffling 10 passes to DevCon London that will be held in the same venue in the same time with JAX. If you want to get there too, you can submit a screencast about ReSharper as well. See details on the .NET Tools Blog.

Looking forward to your contributions!
The JetBrains Team
