What’s for Dinner?
by Jim Conner
This application will help you answer one of the most challenging of family questions - What's for Dinner? Although this application helps you to identify and discover your meal, it's not really about food. The inspiration was to explore and learn how Appian, micro-services, and practical amplified intelligence can be combined to create a new and more compelling application and user experience.
Prizes included cash ($5,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively), plus free passes to Appian World 2020 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 8th to 11th. In addition, the winners are receiving promotion of their application on the Appian.com site, and on the online Appian Community .
Malcolm Ross, Vice President of Product Marketing at Appian, said, “Bringing ideas to solution using traditional software technology is hard, and our mission at Appian is to make building those solutions simple. Each year the hackathon is open to anyone across the globe, challenging them to take an idea and turn it into a unique enterprise application using a free instance of our cloud platform. It is simply amazing to see what our contestants were able to develop using our low-code platform in such a short time. We congratulate our winners and look forward to doing it all over again next year.”
