Realtime Extends Deadline for App Competition

Cloud developers challenged to build next generation xRTML 3.0 apps before Feb. 28,2012

Realtime (http://www.realtime.co), creators of the leading global technology framework and applications to power the "Realtime Web," today announced an extended deadline for its competition to build the next generation of xRTML 3.0 application. Developers now have until Feb. 28 to submit their apps before a distinguished panel of judges, including developer Peter Lubbers of Google and Sam Wierema of TheNextWeb.

The latest release of xRTML 3.0-the extensible, real-time, multiplatform language-is transforming the World Wide Web into the "Realtime Web." The new xRTML 3.0 flattens the learning curve for building next-generation apps with bidirectional, real-time communications. Its instantaneous updates employ a fraction of the bandwidth required by traditional request/response and near-real-time technologies. Major enhancements include:

  • A more robust, coherent and flexible core framework.
  • Provision for the use of multiple versions.
  • Beta release of a storage layer with built-in connection and security protocol, and provision of read/write permissions.
  • A new templating system focused on data rather than form, making it an invaluable tool for data-dependent applications.
  • An inheritance model to simplify processes and make it easier to extend tags or create new ones from scratch.
  • Metadata to provide a virtual roadmap within your browser.

xRTML 3.0 is available for immediate creation of contest submissions.

XRTML is available for immediate signup and use on a free or pay-as-you-go basis at www.realtime.co. To submit your Realtime apps before a distinguished panel of judges, please visit contest.xrtml.org. Prizes are wireless headphones by Dr. Dre, Jambox Jawbones and Sublime Text licenses.
