What is a Bake-off

The original meaning of the word is:
  • noun - a cooking contest in which participants prepare their own recipes, as for a specified kind of cake
Webopedia.com provides the meaning we are after:
  1. In technology it is a research comparison process where competing technologies are compared and the product or service is then chosen. Also called technology bake-off.
  2. A gathering where software programmers test their creations against network protocols.
A longer introduction, covering our goals, deadlines and dreams will be provided once discussions with the initial round of participants commences in June.
