Exadel announced the Grand Prize winner of the “Appery.io COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon.”

Katerina Zhadko, a freelance front-end developer based in Europe, was awarded First Place in the Hackathon which ran from April 22, 2020 to May 6, 2020. Zhadko’s winning app, “COVID-19 Knowledge Test,” aims to evaluate the degree of a user’s knowledge regarding COVID-19 and increase the level of COVID-19 information literacy.

Using Appery.io, a low-code application development platform created by Exadel, participants were asked to build applications that help groups and businesses most impacted by COVID-19. Developers from around the world submitted apps for consideration and a panel of experts judged each submission based on a detailed set of criteria.

Hackathon prizes were awarded as follows:

1. First-Place - $1,000 and an Appery.io Annual Pro Subscription

2. Second-Place - $500 and an Appery.io Annual Pro Subscription

3. Third-Place - $250 and an Appery.io Annual Pro Subscription

“It was inspiring to see all the thoughtful and innovative solutions built during the Appery.io COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon,” said Fima Katz, CEO and co-founder of Exadel. “The past few months the global community has been focused on maintaining connection and providing support in novel ways—technology has been instrumental in making this possible. Congratulations to Grand Prize Winner Katerina Zhadko for developing an application with a positive, powerful purpose.”

Additional submissions included:

- A social vulnerability app that tracks self-reported COVID-19 test results and downstream impacts including mental health, economic, housing and other specific needs.

- A health monitor app that connects doctors and patients. Patients can update their symptoms, notifying doctors of changes in their condition without needing to meet face to face.
