Excerpt of article text...

In REALchallenge, I'll have contests that will appeal to both beginners and experienced users. These challenges may consist of entire programs, games, classes, or just algorithms. One issue I'll do a beginner challenge; the next may be an intermediate or advanced challenge. Regardless of difficulty level, each issue I will present a new programming task and give you a couple months to write, debug, and submit your solution.

Your submission will be reviewed on the following criteria: code style, user interface (if applicable), features, and overall function. REALbasic Developer will choose the best submission and I'll feature it in a future column. I may also show my own solution to the task, and explain the logic behind the code.

Winners will be presented in the following categories: Most Efficient Code, Best Interface (if applicable), Coolest Feature, and Best Overall. Each winner will receive a book of their choice, courtesy of Peachpit Press (we'll contact you with a list of books to choose from), and possibly other prizes as well!
