Calling all developers, lords, and ladies! In an effort to celebrate and promote the completion of our new REST API, Wufoo is throwing down an API Contest. The skilled developer who creates the most awesome integration will not only walk away with $3000 in cash, but they’ll also be the proud owner of a friggin’ Battle Axe!
The contest starts today, and we encourage you to get creative with the API tools that enable you to build applications, advanced reports, and visualizations not offered by the default Wufoo UI. We’re really excited to see what you all can come up with, and if you’re stuck for ideas, we’ve listed some popular suggestions on our contest page (sorry folks, this page and contest is no longer available!)
In addition to First place winning a real battle axe, we’re giving out cash prizes and free lifetime Wufoo accounts to the top three winners.
And if you don’t have any programming skills under your belt, you can still win some cool prizes by helping us promote the contest. For the next five Tuesdays while the contest is running, we’ll choose a random winner who’s tweeted the **#WufooAPIContest** hashtag to win an awesome LEGO Viking and some sweet Wufoo swag.
So check out the contest page (sorry folks, this page and contest is no longer available!) and get programmin’. Your entry should be a fully functioning use of the Wufoo API with a demo that we can see and use. If you don’t wish to make it public or it contains sensitive data, feel free to password protect the demo and include that information in your submission. If you have any questions about the contest, the API, the rules, prizes, or anything else, please do let us know.
