We recently concluded our first ever Accela Civic App Challenge, where we encouraged third party app developers and other partners to propose their ideas for the next great civic app.
The response form the Accela developer community was overwhelming and exceeded our expectations. All told, almost 50 participants submitted 20 project proposals for building civic apps that integrate with the Accela Construct API and CivicData.com. This is a tremendous response that helps to underscore the depth of innovation and thought leadership in the Accela developer community.
The judging process is now complete and we’re planning to announce the winners of the Civic App Challenge next week, on July 23rd. we’ll be reaching out to all participants in the interim to let them know the results and to offer feedback on the proposals that were submitted.
Each and every idea that was submitted could be the basis for a cutting edge civic application, and all of the participants should be proud of their entires. We hope to help each participant take their idea to fruition, and realize their vision for a great civic app.
Stay tuned for the announcement of winners next week. We’re also looking forward to showcasing the grand prize winners at our upcoming Accela Engage conference.
