It’s been said that difficult challenges are often the best catalysts for innovation and creativity.
As this year has forced us to rethink the way we connect as individuals, communities, organizations and even nations, we’re challenging participants to create an online solution or web application using Corvid by Wix that creates connections.
These applications will virtually connect individuals or groups who can help, support or benefit each other, given the many physical restrictions we face in the offline world.
Corvid is an open development platform that lets you build advanced web applications. With serverless computing and hassle-free coding, you can manage all your content from integrated databases, add your own code in the built-in IDE or work in your own environment, and connect to 100s of APIs. Plus, you get total design freedom from the visual builder and optimized business applications—all in one integrated platform.
