AnyMeeting Plans WebRTC Hackathon Event for 2013, Seeking Participants, Sponsors


A premier provider of Web conferencing for small businesses, AnyMeeting is hosting a “hackathon” to be held in mid-January 2013, in order to bring together designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, marketers and product managers to collaborate on a new project.

The event is being called the “AnyMeeting WebRTC Hackathon,” and will involve an intense hack session lasting 12 hours, and focusing on WebRTC.

“As one of the leading providers of Web conferencing and online meeting technology for small businesses, AnyMeeting is passionate and excited about new technology that enables us to further our company’s mission--bring the power of online meetings to everyone,” said the company’s founder and CEO, Costin Tuculescu.“Personally, as a coder myself, I love the chance  to meet other technologists and develop cutting-edge functionality that takes full advantage of the latest developments in our industry.”

The new technology the event will be based around is WebRTC, an open framework for the Web that enables real time communications in the browser using JavaScript.

The event will kick off with a keynote address by Tuculescu, and a special guest of the speaker. Afterwards, attendees of the event will be broken up into teams to plan and develop their projects. The session ends when each team has finished their product or service in the allotted time.

Each subsequent presentation will also include a question and answer period at the end, and the event will close with an awards ceremony.

The grand prize for the winner of the WebRTC Hackathon is nothing to laugh at, so the teams will most likely be working hard. The winning team will receive a grand prize offered by AnyMeeting for $5,000, but the company is also offering smaller prizes to the two runner-ups.

Currently there are sponsorship opportunities available to companies interested in the event, whether they participate or not.

AnyMeeting has a host of information on the coming hackathon on its website, where you can check into sponsorship opportunities, or register.
