Viddy Looking for Developers, Creates Contest


Venice based start up Viddy has released their API and is looking for web developers to work here in Venice. Viddy is billed as “a simple way for anyone to capture, beautify and share amazing videos with the world” and has been likened to an “Instagram for video”. The company recently raised $3o million at a $370 million valuation.


Yo! Viddy! That is not the Venice Pier in your promo photos! Waddup with that! This one is Sta Monica! Hit me up, I’ll give you some pictures.
