Force.com provides a powerful Metadata API that you can use to manage the metadata behind various types of application components (objects and fields, Apex classes and triggers, Visualforce pages, etc.). Other than a few hits, search engines turn up very little community-developed content that demonstrates the power of the Metadata API. What a shame, because we’re sure that some of the awesome developers in our community have leveraged the API to build some very interesting tools. And that’s what we’re seeking in this challenge.
For this second developer challenge, show us a cool app or tool that uses the Metadata API and then write an article that explains its source code so that other Force.com developers can benefit from your genius. Build the winning entry, and a US$1000 gift card is all yours, plus we’ll publish your work on Developer Force so that everyone knows what a code ninja you are.
