Dwolla, highly innovative payment network, celebrates its second anniversary by hosting a hackathon in its birthplace: Des Moines, Iowa. To complement the unusual choice of geography for a hackathon, Dwolla chose a name to fit the occasion: Old MacDonald Hackathon. Dwolla and co-host, Silicon Prairie News, aim for 50 developers to enjoy the scene and conjure up some disruptive applications utilizing Dwolla's APIs.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including COVID-19, Banking and Sustainability. Included is an API that enables users to convert spreadsheets to APIs, an API for intelligent pricing services, and an API for verifying identity in real time.
