Introducing The Devvies, ServiceNow’s App of the Year Contest

This is your chance to show off your innovation and creativity, inspire your peers, and get major Community recognition! Oh….and exclusive ServiceNow swag, of course!

So, what exactly is The Devvies contest?

Have you built an awesome app that has transformed how your organization or your customer’s organization works? Did you simplify your team’s workflows, increase productivity, or save an organization time and money?

The Devvies is the perfect opportunity to show off your solutions and accomplishments! The contest is open to everyone, from Professional Developers to Citizen Developers (people who don’t build apps as their primary job function).

By entering the contest, you’ll be able to score swag, showcase your work, and inspire your peers to build apps on ServiceNow that continue to transform! You can enter solo or with a team of up to five individuals.

Is The Devvies Contest, for me?

YES! Whether you’re a pro developer or someone with no coding experience, the possibilities of what you can build on ServiceNow are endless.

Based on you and your team’s skill set and application, The Devvies will be awarding two prizes! One overall App of the Year prize and another special category Citizen Dev App of the Year prize where the app is primarily built by Citizen Developers, individuals who don’t write code as part of their day job.

Every eligible app submission will score ServiceNow swag, MVP points, and Community recognition. You and your team will also be in the running to become finalists in one of the two categories: App of the Year & Citizen Dev App of the Year.

Okay, now for THE BEST part
