ID: 30524, RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin, REST/JSON and using a fun site: Name2Gen

by David Intersimone Email: Anonymous


Using the RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin REST Debugger and REST Client Library components, I quickly tested Name2Gender's REST API and built Delphi and C++ multi-device projects that run on Windows, OS X, iOS and Android.

Description
I was thinking about how I would do a gender based analysis of our customer database without surveying our customers. The Embarcadero Community profile does not ask whether you are male or female. At the recent Evans Data Developer Relations Conference, there was a presentation about the number of developers in the world (currently around 19 million going up to 25 million in 2020). Evans Data puts the global number of female developers near 20%. In a November 2015 report, IDC said that "24% of North American developers are female". I am always looking around for new REST based sites to test our REST Client Library Components. Wondering what our Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio developer gender profile looks like, I started to see how I might analyze the first names of our customers. I looked at several sources of first name analysis including the United States Social Security name list. As part of my search, I found a site that has a REST/JSON API to search for the likely gender by first name. The site is Name2Gender.com.

Using the RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin REST Debugger and REST Client Library components, I quickly tested Name2Gender's REST API and built Delphi and C++ multi-device projects that run on Windows, OS X, iOS and Android. Here are some screen shots and the source code.
