InterSystems Developer Tools Contest: Vote For the Best Apps!

Hey Developers,

This week is a voting week for the InterSystems Developer Tools programming contest! So, it's time to give your vote to the best solutions built with InterSystems IRIS.

🔥 You decide: VOTING IS HERE 🔥

How to vote and what's new?

All InterSystems employees can vote in both Expert and Community nominations.

Any developer can vote for their application – votes will be counted in both Expert and Community nominations automatically (in accordance with the Global Masters level).

DC Members: You can select 3 projects: the 1st, the 2nd, and the 3rd place upon your decision. This is how it works for the Community leaderboard:

Community Leaderboard:


1st 2nd 3rd
If you have an article posted on DC and an app uploaded to Open Exchange (OEX) 9 6 3
If you have at least 1 article posted on DC or 1 app uploaded to OEX 6 4 2
If you make any valid contribution to DC (posted a comment/question, etc.) 3 2 1

For the Experts leaderboard, different levels of experts have more "points" power:

Experts Leaderboard:


1st 2nd 3rd
VIP Global Masters level or ISC Product Managers 15 10 5
Ambassador GM level 12 8 4
Expert GM level or DC Moderators 9 6 3
Specialist GM level 6 4 2
Advocate GM level or ISC Employees 3 2 1

For those who have any of the above expert levels, votes will be counted in both Expert and Community nominations automatically.

This is how it works:

To take part in the voting, you need:

  1. Sign in to Open Exchange – DC credentials will work.
  2. Make any valid contribution to the Developer Community – answer or ask questions, write an article, contribute applications on Open Exchange – and you'll be able to vote. Check this post on the options to make helpful contributions to the Developer Community.

If you changed your mind, cancel the choice and give your vote to another application – you have 7 days to choose!

Contest participants are allowed to fix the bugs and make improvements to their applications during the voting week, so don't miss and subscribe to application releases!

Hi John!

Not exactly. For some reason, we don't mention here that we allow editing and improvements during the voting week too. @Anastasia Dyubaylo, don't you know why?
 ALL the previous contests had this option and all the contestants used it this week for improvements, bug-fixing, and advertising.

@Anastasia Dyubaylo, could you please add that everyone is able to improve applications during the voting week too?

In all contests, developers were able to improve their applications throughout the entire registration and voting period.

And from the announcement above:

So, we need to fix the main announcement. Thanks, @John Murray! ;)

Developers! Only 1 day left before the end of voting.

Please check out the Contest Board and vote for the solutions you like! 👍🏼
