Visual WebGui Issues Code Challenge to Experienced Developers

A $10,000 reward for a Webmail application with minimal lines of code

VisualWebGui RIA Developer Journal on Ulitzer

Developers can register for the Code Challenge on-line from anywhere in the world.

In the first code challenge of its kind, Visual WebGui is offering a $10,000 and giving away prizes valued at thousands of dollars in their call to developers to be the first to submit a Webmail application written by another framework with fewer lines of code.

According to CEO Navot Peled, “Developers understand the importance of being productive in a challenging economy environment by writing minimal lines of code. It is significant on design time but it also has long term affect with maintenance and extension costs in the future.   Our Webmail which provides a full desktop Outlook user interface constitutes of 11,300 lines of non-designer generated code, and our engineers believe that the Visual WebGui framework is regarded worldwide as the most efficient tool to write such an application. But we’re willing to put our money where our mouth is, and challenge developers to prove us wrong and to do it better!”

The company noted that its platform's benefits include the ‘empty client’ architecture enables fast, highly productive, desktop development methodologies for web AJAX development.  While conventional AJAX requires developers to program using a number of different client side and server side languages in multi level architecture, Visual WebGui enables the developer to use a single model, standard .NET coding with one layer and therefore focus on what they want to achieve and not on how to achieve it.  Another benefit is the pre-defined application blocks provided to developers, which increases the efficiency and productivity of developing AJAX or Silverlight with Visual WebGui, while still allowing the flexibility to customize and extend.
Visual WebGui’s productivity is featured via the "Project Webmail", which is an Outlook-like web application with desktop responsiveness & performance & functionalities that was developed by a single developer in only one month.

Now other developers can prove their skills by accepting the Code Challenge!
