Great news everyone! Amazon has just announced the list of semi-finalists of the AWS Global Start-Up Challenge and…

we made it to the semi-finals!

Wikidot has been selected among five other contestants in the Consumer Applications category: Appy Couple, LogMyCalls, Hive, Magnasoft NorthStar and Powhow.

We are really glad that Wikidot has been recognised as a great web project and for its usage of AWS services. Congratulations to all semi-finalists and good luck!

Wikidot has been running 100% on Amazon Web Services since September 2012 and utilises several AWS-based services: computing instances, autoscaling, storage, load balancers, monitoring and several management tools. Wikidot also uses Chef to manage and configure up to 40 server instances.

On behalf of our whole team I would like to wish all of you Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Quanza or just Happy Holidays! It is always a special time we used to spend with our families and the ones we care about most. It is time to get strength for the upcoming year — and I guess this is what we all need.


I wish you all best. Wisdom, peace of mind, strength and patience. And success, whatever success you wish for right now.

For us, each year brings new challenges. I am really glad we can go through them with you — our great community. At Wikidot we are taking some time off to get ready for whatever new challenges and opportunities await us. Keep your thumbs crossed!
