SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Built.io® – a technology provider with digital solutions that enable organizations to quickly create, connect and scale applications across mobile, web and IoT – today announced the Built.io Community and the Internet of API (IoA) Awards. In a nod to its innovative culture, Built.io believes that the Community and the IoA Awards will help foster the same forward-thinking environment its own developers used to create the company's award-winning tools.
The Community will consist of technical and semi-technical users who understand the power of automation and integration. Community members will benefit from networking with like-minded integration experts and citizen integrators who care about automation, bots, the Internet of Things (IoT), headless Content Management Systems (CMS), Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS), DevOps and more. Built.io also plans to leverage the expertise of its community's power users, or those who are experienced users of Built.io products, to help make them even better.
Members will benefit from using Built.io's suite of integration products – Built.io Flow Enterprise and Built.io Flow Express – to solve their problems. In addition, the first 100 users to sign up for the community will acquire "VIP" status, making them eligible for upgraded trials with 3x credits for Built.io Flow Enterprise and 3x workflows for Built.io Flow Express.
The IoA Awards will be an integration challenge co-sponsored and co-judged with featured partners. The quarterly award offers a $5,000 cash prize for the best integration submitted by a developer using Built.io Flow and is exclusively available to community members.
Built.io Community members will not only have access to contests like the IoA Awards, but will also benefit from:
- Being featured on Built.io's blog and partner sites
- Suggesting and upvoting new service integrations
- Getting first access to services in beta
- Connecting and network with fellow integrators
- Fast-tracking additions to the Built.io Flow integration library
"At our core, all of our technology and the Built.io platform were designed and built from the ground up for developers by developers," said Nishant Patel, CTO of Built.io. "The Built.io Community expands the purview of who can participate as a developer and provides a dedicated space to create and collaborate. Our goal is to encourage a new and broader audience to innovate around APIs, recognizing both the traditional developers who code and the makers who don't."
