Tech startups Re.vu and GuideKit were the big winners in yesterday’s 59 Days of Code competition.
Re.vu won the in-progress category after completing a web application that aims to change the way resumes are created. Designed by Stephen Years, Re.vu moves away from the traditional paper resume and allows users to create a resume full of graphs, pictures and other widgets.
“This is an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in these job seekers lives,” said Years, while explaining how the current unemployment rates inspired him to create the online service.
We are totally excited to have won the 59 Days of Code competition for the "In-Progress" category!
