Kii Cloud Debuts at the CEA MoDev Hackathon!

Kii traveled to Las Vegas last week to the Consumer Electronics Show for the CEA MoDev Hackathon on January 9th. It was our first appearance (more on the way) with Kii Cloud, and we had an awesome time working with so many great developers! Kii was there as a sponsor, joined by The Travel ChannelFacebookMicrosoftSamsung and Sony.

Twenty-six teams competed for more than $40K in cash and prizes; they had eight hours to plan, design and implement a brand new mobile applications with ‘travel’ as the main theme. More than a dozen teams chose to utilize Kii Cloud as their backend solution, enabling them to expedite their development process by focusing time and efforts on user interface and application functionality while leaving the backend infrastructure to Kii..

Developers utilized many aspects of Kii Cloud, including social connectivityuser managementdata management and file storage. From managing photos and videos to aggregating tags and authenticating users, Kii had them covered!

One of our favorite apps from the hackathon was Ralley! – an awesome travel utility that enables you to find restaurants, activities, and entertainment based on your preference and budget. Check them out and give them props on Twitter (@RalleyMe) as they work to polish and publish their new app!
