Development tools

Too bad I haven't taken the time to teach Christopher about being a developer. He wants an iPod and I found that eDeveloper Discovery is launching a contest to reward the developer who creates the coolest application with their product. The prizes are iPods. He would probably build some video game cheat code application. Anyway, more details from the press release if anyone is interested.

Or Yehuda, Israel; February 14, 2007 – With the announcement of the free Discovery edition of its eDeveloper™ software, Magic Software Enterprises (NASDAQ: MGIC) is launching a contest to reward the developer who comes up with the "coolest" application. Software applications created with eDeveloper Discovery edition will be judged for their innovation, design, quality, the use of eDeveloper advanced features and the holistic solution created. Amit Ben-Zvi, VP Marketing and Products, says, "We want everyone to be able to experience the power of eDeveloper, and we intend to have fun with this contest. It's always amazing to see how creative people can be, both in the nature and scope of development projects, and in the ways they find to develop and deploy those applications." Entries for the contest must be received by Magic Software no later than April 30, 2007. The winners of the contest will be announced on May 15, 2007 and two Apple iPOD’s® will be awarded.
