Server & API

A custom API was developed on top of AWS to feed the app data. The app was written in PHP and uses MySQL as the storage engine. The API serves application data such as events, places, images and allows for quick and simple content updates on the backend. The backend also handles users’ annual contest entries and allows admins to select winners and manage the list of contestants.
