Your own application can use DaniWeb's login mechanism, you can write a native mobile app for DaniWeb, you can create your own completely unique front-end for the site, there really are limitless possibilities.

Lake Success, NY (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

DaniWeb, the 10 year-old technology forum with over a million members, is proud to announce a competition to find the best use of the newly launched API. As well as the kudos of exposing development skills to their peers in the highly respected DaniWeb community, the winners will share in a $500 prize fund: first prize being a $300 Amazon gift voucher.

DaniWeb Founder and CEO, Dani Horowitz, said: "There's a lot that you can do with our API. Essentially it allows your application (web, desktop, mobile, etc) to tap into DaniWeb's back end. Your own application can use DaniWeb's login mechanism, you can write a native mobile app for DaniWeb, you can create your own completely unique front-end for the site, there really are limitless possibilities."

Indeed, the only boundary to what can be done is your own creative flair. So whether you fancy developing an Android or iOS mobile app for DaniWeb, turning the award winning DaniWeb IT news editorial into a standalone digital newspaper, or something altogether more surprising, now is the opportunity to put your programming skills to the test.

Entry is open to all members of DaniWeb (membership is free of charge) old and new, with entries being accepted from now until the end of May 31st, 2013 with voting taking place in June.

Code submissions should be posted within the relevant code snippet library for their language whereas downloadable apps, websites, etc. should be posted within the Show Off Your Projects forum in the Business Exchange section. All submissions must be tagged with both 'daniweb-api' and 'daniweb-api-contest-submission' in order to be eligible.

The prizes are as follows:

First Prize: $300 Amazon gift certificate
Second Prize: $125 Amazon gift certificate
Third Prize: $75 Amazon gift certificate
