Expanded and Extended! The "World's Fastest Server" Application Challenge

New! .NET Apps Welcome: Deadline April 30, 2009

Build a great app to work with the World’s Fastest Server, post an article on The Code Project, and you could win a dedicated server for life from HostMySite.com!

Here’s how: write an article, build an app that consumes the data feed from the World’s Fastest Server. What’s the World’s Fastest Server? It’s a custom drag bike…a fully electric drag bike that will go from 0 to REALLY REALLY fast in less than two seconds.  This bike will serve Web data while in motion, including:

  1. Web Cam images
  2. GPS tracking and location
  3. Virtual instrument cluster (Speed, Battery power, etc.)

… and all of this data is exposed to you!

Here are the details:

Write a great article explaining how you built an app to consume the bike’s data – complete with code -- and post it in any .NET or LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, or PHP) section, and if yours is the highest rated article by both The Code Project community and our judges, you win a dedicated server for life! See below for more details.
