Thank you all for registering for the Whispir DevPost challenge. We need a couple more days to validate one or two entrants plus we have had a request for two late submissions which had issues with our registration process. We are allowing these and hence will make our judging public in three days.

Improved Sign-up Procedure

Hey guys,

We’ve improved the sign-up procedure to make it faster to register for your API.
