Embarcadero Developer Community Challenge - build a great app using 0, 1 or 2 lines of code...
Extra credit if the app is a multi-device FireMonkey (FMX) app. Extra credit if the app uses VCL. You can also decide to build a console app, web app, REST server and any other application type that 10 Seattle supports.
One warning: I'l take a dim view of apps that have zero, one or two lines of code that only calls your own .DLL, .Dylib, .SO, .Lib, .OBJ, .A, etc. that contains a lot of code you've written (if it is a commercial, shareware or open source reusable library or object, that is okay as long as you tell everyone that you are using it - just as it is okay to use components, libraries, etc that come with 10 Seattle).
I will use my best judgement to decide on the top 5 finalists and will then ask the Embarcadero Developer Community to decide on the first, second and third winners from the five finalists. The winners will receive a "collectible" from my 30 years stash of stuff :D
I have blogged about several solutions with these constraints on this blog in the past that might give you an idea of what is possible:
- TMS Software blog: Two lines of code to add QR, UPC, EAN code scanning to your iOS Delphi apps - http://blogs.embarcadero.com/davidi/2014/02/05/43526
- Delphi XE5 iOS and Android One Line of Code App - Map My Location - http://blogs.embarcadero.com/davidi/2013/11/03/42959
The "10 Seattle 012" challenge starts today! The deadline for submissions is December 11, 2015. I can't wait to see how creative you can be with zero, one or two lines of code! Game on!!!
