Our friends over at Kynetx, a platform for context-aware, cross-platform app development, invited us to participate in their last online app development contest of 2010. Here's a chance to show off the capabilities of YQL and Kynetx working together.
For this contest, build any application that uses both Kynetx and YQL. That's the only requirement: You can add any other web service into the mix. The app can be deployed as a browser extension, bookmarklet, site tags, or you can skip the browser altogether (using Twilio, for example). The winning application will receive a 16GB wifi iPad! Contest ends on Thursday December 16th, at Midnight Pacific Time.
Over on the Kynetx blog, look for Brad Hintze to post a YQL Kynetx app example in the coming days. (Follow @ydn for a pointer to his demo app). You can find the YQL console and YQL documentation at developer.yahoo.com/yql.
If you've never checked out Kynetx, sign up for a free developer account here. Once your app is built and ready to go, simply enter the details after you log in. Apps are due Thursday, December 16th by 11:59pm PT. If you need any help or want to get creative with Kynetx developers, join them on DevEx or find them today at Cloudstock. (YDN is at Cloudstock today too!) Got questions about YQL? Join us on the YQL forum or shoot us a direct message on Twitter.
Good luck, we can't wait to see what you come up with!
