The Original RAD RACE … and the winners are our APEX-Goeroes Olivier & Niels

The Original RAD Race ® International Edition 2007/2008 was held in Hasselt, Belgium on friday 19th & Saturday 20thOctober 2007.

Our two participants Olivier and Niels were ready to take up the challenge and were fully armed with their knowledge and expertise.

ON yhursday October 18th they set up their environment and friday October 19th the assignment was given to all teams. Saturday some change requests were given and Olivier and Niels were already putting in some fancy stuff, such as the image gallery already published on this blog.

Then each team was asked to present its application to the grand jury, so the waiting-part began. Worst of all, Niels and Olivier were the one but last team to give their presentation, which meant our patience was being tested ;o)

It’s time for our 2 goeroes to show the jury the APEX application they’ve built with all the fancy stuff and widgets they’ve developed.

The jury had some comments, but the overall feeling was pretty good.

When all teams finished their presentations, the jury went into deliberation and the other team-members, chearleaders/supporters could have a look at the different applications created by each team.
Time to hear the verdict … there was an ex aequo for the 1st and 2nd place, both teams had made rich user interfaces. Each application had its own benefits and features and the jury couldn’t decide which was the best one.

One of the applications was role-based, had a rich client interface, colour-based text-fields … and the supporters were thinking, this is the application of Olivier & Niels …

INDEED … Olivier and Niels had won the 1st price together with Getronics … keep-up the evangilisation boys !!!

  3. Congratulations Niels and Olivier!I wonder if you had to start from scratch or could start from whatever you had (for ex. your framework)Well done,Dimitri

  4. This is indeed a great performance, beating .Net and other Java frameworks !Congratulations to Niels and Olivier and of course to Apex.Because Apex is thé framework.Niels & Olivier started from scratch, but of course we, at iAdvise, have a whole set of reusable components and sample applications, we already built, that we can reuse.

  5. Congratulations Olivier and the other guy! I was amazed to see your originality and natural imgaination comes to life with the winning applications. You certainly have a promising future in the sky of developing and in iAdvise.Tani
