Structr Developer Contest

During GraphConnect New York 2017, a contest will take place in the DevZone.
There are many great prizes waiting for you. After the closing keynote, we’ll announce the winners.

You build an app while our development team assists you. The app has to be built using Structr’s integrated web app development environment or your own frontend stack, connecting to Structr as a JSON/REST backend. You can either use the default bootstrap theme and widgets provided by Structr or import your own choice. There are already some example pages in the system so you can start from there.

Terms and Conditions

You have time until the closing keynote starts. Every individual or team who wants to participate needs to show the app to a Structr team member. We might ask you to provide us an export/dump
