Embarcadero Cool Apps Contest

Embarcadero Cool App ContestThis contest awards prizes and showcases cool applications built using Embarcadero's RAD Studio, InterBase, RAD Server, Delphi and C++Builder. We are looking for cool applications across all industries including personal use, using any type of application you can build with our products. Your cool app can use VCL, FireMonkey, DataSnap, EMS, FireDAC, InterBase and any other components, libraries, services, sites, infrastructures, APIs, devices and other capabilities.
 
As part of your contest entry, we want you to create a 5 minute video that shows your cool code, UI, technology, component use, architecture, algorithms, data structures, unique solution to a problem, business solution, game, world changing idea and any other app that you want to show off.
 
The contest will be an ongoing monthly contest so there is no specific deadline for submission. We will be giving each monthly winner a $500 USD gift card (or equivalent). In addition, we will feature the winning submission on our YouTube page, in a press release, in social media and via other channels so that all of your fellow Embarcadero community members will be able to admire your work.
 
You only need to submit your cool app once and as long as it is getting votes it will remain eligible to win.
 
You can see some of our previous winners on YouTube.

You can use any screen recording software to create your 5 minute Cool App Contest video. At Embarcadero we use Camtasia for Windows and Camtasia for Mac by TechSmith (they have trial versions available if you are interested). TechSmith has tutorials available for Camtasia for Windows and Camtasia for Mac. Your video should be recorded and rendered at or near 1920x1080 resolution. Please make sure that your IDE editor’s text font size is set to 12 point or larger (Lucida Console 14 point is a good choice too). YouTube is most convenient, but any public video hosting will work.
 
We look forward to seeing all of the cool apps our Embarcadero community members have built!
