These are the winners for the xRTML contest. We had a lot more entries but, unfortunately, a lot of them did not comply with the rules or were a mere webpage with a xRTML tag, which we can not accept as an "application.

Congratulations to the winners, which we will contact by email. Great job!

We also want to thank our judges for their help and for being part of this competition. Thanks!

Richard has been making games and demos since he typed in his first 8-bit code listing decades ago.

About xRTML

xRTML (Extensible Realtime Multiplatform Language) is a layer of the Realtime framework that will bring your company’s skillset to the world of Web 3.0, giving you easy access to the most recent technologies to push information, provided by ORTC.

With this very simple and unobtrusive library your technical teams will have, instantly at their hands, the power to make your websites and pages become “alive”. They will be able to quickly add a component that allows the push of a news article to a page, another to dynamically create a voting poll, or even have the most up-to-date stock exchange information.

When developing interactive products, your technical teams will only have to worry about what is the logic that makes sense for your business. Our library takes away the hassle of the technical details by providing a large set of out-of-the-box components ready to put your product together. But xRTML is more than just a set of components that you can use in conjunction with HTML, it is a fully fledged part of the Realtime® framework that allows you to build your own tags by extending existing ones or creating new components in a structured and guided manner.

By taking advantage of the know-how in real-time technologies that we have put into our library and server-side Application Programming Interfaces, you will make your product more appealing whilst optimizing the time-to-market. Our vision is that, by using a basic component like for example a Repeater, you can unleash the power of Realtime® on your website in no time and use your own creativity to turn it into something amazing.

xRTML covers most of the widely used platforms and languages, enabling the simple creation of integrated Realtime solutions in whichever environment you are targeting. This gives you a horizontally scalable technology that will enable a mobile device such as an iPhone or Android device to communicate with a web page and interpret the same data structure. Making it transversal, from JavaScript to common server-side languages such as JAVA, .NET or PHP. Additionally, some plugins are also available for some of the most used CMSs (e.g. Wordpress and Joomla).
