Last week in Los Angeles, at the annual Accela Engage Conference, we announced the winners of our 2015 Accela Civic App Challenge.
This year’s app challenge saw an increase in the number of participants, and the projects that were submitted for final judging were among the most creative and innovative solutions for leveraging the Accela Civic Platform that we have seen. The judges – which included the Accela Developer Evangelism team as well as Accela customers – were very impressed with the quality of all of the submissions. In short, the field of entrants this year was extremely competitive.
The grand prize winner of the 2015 Civic App Challenge was AppCityLife for their submission of Accela Create – a platform that enables rapid mobile application development on top of the Civic Platform.
AppCityLife, and second place winner MuniRent – a company that is focused on bringing the “sharing economy” to government – joined Accela’s Seth Axthelm on stage at the Engage Conference to talk about the Civic App Challenge and their submissions.
