    Looking for awesome Flex developers

    Cristian Andreica

      I'm looking for awesome Flex developers who are interested in creating real-time collaborative applications. Deadline is 7 of May.

       

      You may call it a race. The apps created are automatically registered in a public voting system. The most popular app created wins 1000$, and the guy who recommend the winner gets 500$. So if you don't have time or don't like the idea of an application contest, be sure to let your friends know.

       

      This is an actual opportunity for freelancers who are looking to play with new technologies, but often don't find the time or motivation to do it.

       

      Rules:

                   - register first [free, that's not the point]

                   - use XTWIP collaboration service in your app (much like Adobe LCCS, except that you have full control over the content being shared and that you don't have built-in components)

                   - send your app until 7 of May 2010 [better hurry]

      Feel free to ask any question here, on the website, blog, or support email.

       

      P.S. This is a great opportunity for Flex developers to test their adoption skills. Its target is non-commercial, but technology driven. Cheers.

          I'm curious. So can you elaborate on the copyright status of all this intellectual property we are going to submit to you?

            Hello tedro2,

             

            By submitting your application to this contest, you agree that the intellectual property of your creation goes public, under Apache 2.0 license. After the contest is over, we will publish your application source code, as we are interested to allow the open-source community to learn from these experiences.

            Under your approval, we can also publish your application in the XTWIP showcase (by carefully mentioning that you are the creator).

             

            The scope is not to repackage your application into a new product, but mainly to offer other developers the possibility to see more collaborative applications in action, as our belief is that web should be far more collaborative than it is today.

             

            Thank you for your question,

              Is the source of XTWIP itself public? Where can I download it to learn from it?

                Hello David,

                 

                XTWIP offers an API that developers use for integrating real-time collaboration in their apps. If you want to learn more, here are the steps:

                 

                1. Create a developer account on www.xtwip.com

                2. On the GetStarted tab, download the XTWIP SDK. The documentation can be found a little lower, in html or zip format.

                3. The SDK is used for making a single collaborative instance. For managing multiple instances (that means multiple images/designs/documents/sketches/whatever created by your users), use Document Management Examples for creating/accesing/removing instances.

                 

                That's about it. If you have trouble connecting to XTWIP, reply here or drop an email on support [at] xtwip [doc] com

                 

                Cristian
