Final Round Winners

#Web-Development Writing Contest Winners

In the first place, we have:

This is the story of how a customer made me lose $1000 on moving stuff by 1px. It transformed my career, and I never asked to bet back the money. It also told me something about how web development transforms, and we can adapt to these changes.


We see you @tomaszs, another win that’s awesome! You have won $1000.


The second position is won by:


One day I was inspired by a small yet crucial UI component in the Yahoo Finance iOS app.

This UI component represents stock price changes in real time. The most interesting thing in this component for me it’s the accurate color accents on some parts of a price that was changed.


Well deserved, @prokhorovxo! You have won $600.


In the third place, we have:

Scalability is often talked about casually as - “System X is scalable“ or “System Y is not scalable“. We need to understand that these statements in themselves do not mean anything. Rather, scalability discussions around an application should talk about growing or increasing an application’s capability when a certain type of load is encountered.

Thus before talking about scaling an application, we should properly understand the art of quantifying load and performance. Once we have understood those, then we can talk about the ideas of maintaining performance when load increases in a certain way.


Congratulations on winning $400, @infinity.

#Ecommerce Writing Contest Winners

The first position is won by:


You’re being watched. Whether you like it or not.

You’ve been marked by information technology. Cell towers know where you are. Your calls can be monitored. Your online presence can be hijacked. As if that’s not enough, companies even know your hobbies. They know your likes and dislikes. The profiles you stalk.


Congratulations, @walo! You have won $500!

In the second place, we have:

One of the things we did was create a list of high-quality free resources. We searched for new platforms that had their own listings of AI development tools, no-code platforms, low-code platforms, IDEs, and more. We found these listings on Twitter, Product Hunt, and other resources, and listed them.

Yay, @hacker89811! you have won $300!


The third position is won by:

In the era of simplifying customers’ access to a brand’s services, applications have become important. There are more smartphone users than computers; so, mobile phone applications are a better investment to reach more people.


Thus, if you are targeting Gen Z with a product, it is only proper to understand their smartphone behaviors as a guide to developing an application for them.



Congratulations,@kingabimbola! You have won $200!
