xPrize is a unique 501c(3) non-profit that champions contests to help inspire radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity. They’ve partnered with companies like Google, agencies like NASA, and have a Board of Trustees boasting big names: James Cameron, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Arianna Huffington are just a few. xPrize joined forces with Disney to create a contest for kids, powered by Disney’s Tomorrowland. xPrize asked Weberous to build the contest website, with specific requirements due to legal aspects.
WHAT WE’VE MADE
The site had to include a multi-step process of parental registration, verification, and a consent grant – before their children could submit entries spanning text, photo, and video. All of these nuances needed to be fast, and functional from any device. Behind the scenes, Weberous integrated with an API that worked with Transunion in order to verify the parents’ identity, before activating their child’s account for submission.Weberous built the website to automatically compress photos, convert video entries through Zencoder for compatibility, and store video media externally on Amazon’s S3 servers for faster site load times and streaming. The future is now!
Thank you Rafael and Mario for all your help making this a huge success. It looks fantastic!!
