honestly, that contest looks ridiculously stupid and ill conceived.

any developer worth hiring knows that different languages/platforms/ 
frameworks are better suited for different tasks.

if you build '1 web application' under 20 languages / frameworks,  
you're sure to have some frameworks handle it amazingly well -- and  
others horrible -- all because of the design specs.
If you tweak the parameters of that application ever so slightly,  
you'll easily flip the results.

You'll also run into issues where benefits/limitations aren't from  
the languages themselves, but from frameworks built on top of them.

Honestly, i don't understand how someone could hope garner an  
objective comparison of any two platforms by simply comparing a 30hr  
project across different implementations.
