And now for the announcement you've all been waiting for, the winners of the first segment are .....
<drum roll> ...
- lorion84 for his article Optimising Series 40 Web Apps for speed by eliminating server round trips. This article explains how to write a highly responsive Series 40 Web App by avoiding server calls after initial load. It shows a good understanding of the intent and strengths of the web apps platform.
- shaii for his article Extending lwuit layouts. This article is innovative and well written, and best of all provides a new container component that developers can use out-of-the-box in their applications.
- Noel.Anonas for Playing whacking game with Accelerometer Sensor. This is a winner because the APIs are relevant and their use has been well-explained in a real and relevant context (a game). The game is also really fun!
The final decision was fairly tough, so please check out the other entries too for some useful and innovative content. These articles can still win a phone pack in the final competition segment - indeed it is perfectly possible that they will be improved through the coming segment and win the grand prize.
The grand prize and at least three additional winners will be selected at the end of August.
Please join me to congratulate lorion84, shaii and Noel on their win.
