The results and final report of the "Plat_Forms" international programming contest were released yesterday in a press conference in Nuremberg, and will be published today June 20th, 2007 on http://www.plat-forms.org/. For each of the categories Perl, PHP and Java, three teams of three people each competed to produce a comprehensive "social networking" application in just 30 hours.

Team Etat de Genève / Optaros was declared winner of the Perl track. The Geneva solution, based on Catalyst and DBIx::DataModel, was especially praised for its compactness. However, other Perl solutions by "plusW" (Germany) and "Revolution Systems" (USA) were very close, and it was hard for the jury to decide. The report notes that compactness and extensibility are consistent qualities of the Perl solutions.

For the Geneva team, that was a really instructive experience. It confirmed that we work with the right technology and skills ... but also showed that we still have some progress to make as a team in the priorization and quality insurance processes!

See http://www.plat-forms.org/ for the complete report and for many interesting observations on these 3 development platforms. A detailed report of what happened in Geneva team is published on http://www.plat-forms.org/2007/blog/archive/2007/01/29/journal-of-team1
