The V​aadin Challenge​ came to a successful close, and we have our winners! Congratulations to the following winners for their mobile apps!

  • Marco Collovati with 898 points
  • Manolis Sfendilis with 892 points
  • Iyad Nahas with 891 points

The winners received an Apple Watch (1st Place), an iPad (2nd Place) and a GoPro camera (3rd Place)!


The two month journey consisted of many assignments ranging from learning to use the basics of Vaadin to creating a sign-in screen with Vaadin Designer. Another assignment required using Cloud Foundry to creating your own Watson-based­ app using the Vaadin Bluemix Boilerplate.

The challenge was 9 steps, each of which was scored from 0 to 100 points. The final step in the challenge was to create something innovative. Based on their point totals, it’s easy to see why the top­ 3 really did a fantastic job!

We had over 400 participants from 77 countries and over 50 participants made it to the final challenge. A huge turnout that exceeded all expectations!
