An Appery.io team (Francisco Kattan, Max Katz, and Oleksander Piskun) headed out to New York for the TechCrunch Disrupt NY Hackathon that ran the weekend of April 27-28. Our team was there to help developers using Appery.io and to award prizes in our own contest. Check out this collection of social media buzz and other web clippings that captures some of the flavor of the event.
30 teams used Appery.io to develop their hacks at the event. Yes, 30 teams! That's a record for TechCrunch (the next closest sponsor was a distant second at 15 teams).
The three winners for our own contest were Bar Power, CareerHound, and WaterLog.Congratulation again! Appery.io figured in many other contest victories, too — for instance, the winners of the Visa and AT&T contests built their projects with Appery.io. Congratulation to all the winners!
One thing that appealed to developers at the hackathon is the large collection of plug-ins Appery.io features in its catalog. These plug-ins allow you to add ready-made connections to popular APIs (like Salesforce.com, Twilio, Aetna CarePass, and BestBuy, to name a few) right into your app. If you haven't checked out the plug-in collection recently, take a look. (And, because the catalog is built by the community, you can have your own plug-ins published through the catalog.)
