As a developer, getting the most out of your infrastructure is close to your heart and Kii’s APIs are one of the comprehensive out there for Mobile Application Development (check out their platform here) – and some 3scale technology under the covers makes it even more awesome.

However, rather than fighting through pitches there’s now an even more direct way to get support for your app which is to enter the new ChallengePost powered
The prizes total $50,000 in cash, travel and credits in various categories. There are 3 months to complete and launch your app, so plenty of time to do something awesome.
