You may have seen the Iron coder contest in the previous rounds – the first one occurred this spring. It gives Mac developers (with Cocoa) a means to stretch their programming muscle. Participants are given 48 hours to make something cool from scratch. Kinda like “Iron Chef”, but with Mac programming. The catch? You must use the API and theme given at the contest start. The last one used the iTunes visualization API and the theme of Emily Dickenson, but only one person submitted an entry. Let’s hope we do better this time around.
