#FunWithDelphi: NASA API Mashup
You can have a little fun with Delphi and C++Builder in the new year by entering into our #FunWithDelphi contest! Delphi makes it fast and easy to build REST clients using powerful built in components like TRESTClient and TRESTResponseDataSetAdapter. You can easily load up the JSON data retrieved from a REST API into in-memory components like TFDMemTable. Finally, you can use LiveBindings to visually display the data in your apps with very little code required.
We are excited to see what creative ways the Delphi and C++Builder community can come up with to utilize the REST libraries so we are announcing a contest where you can showcase your best REST client mashup using the NASA API. Shout out to Asbjørn Heid for the contest idea! Disclaimer: This contest is not sponsored or approved by NASA.
Fun With RAD Studio: NASA API Mashup
For the contest we are looking for either a VCL or cross platform FMX app in RAD Studio, Delphi, or C++Builder that uses the TRESTClient components to consume data from the NASA API and display it using all of the cool components that RAD Studio offers. Use the FireMonkey effects, FireMonkey animations, Radiant Shapes, and other visual components to build your best NASA API Mashup. Learn how to build a REST client in RAD Studio in a couple minutes. Submissions will be judged by the community. You will need to upload screenshots and/or video of your mashup and provide a link to your project submission on GitHub.
