Hackathon

The Hackathon has come to an end, see you next time.

Updates:

3/7/16 12:18: WE ARE LIVE!

It took the PlayStore some time to process the submission, but it is now available for download! check it out!

3/7/16 09:53: It's a wrap!

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and our developers can finally take a break, lean back and appreciate their accomplishments. At the end of the grueling, caffeine-packed 24 hours marathon, they finished what they came to do and delivered ListYT - a collaborative playlists app, helping users to share their favorite video clips and discover great new ones.

35 developers from Israel, Holmdel and Atlanta have released - with 7 minutes to spare - an Android client supported by a backend server. The client can be downloaded from Google Play here. On top of that achievement, the teams also delivered 2 demo clients: iOS and web. If you do want a taste of these two apps, contact innovation@vonage.com and we'll send you instructions on how to setup the apps.

Thank you for following our hackathon! We're looking forward to the next great innovation event!

3/3/16 18:15: The team is really excited about the hackathon,
We are going to be here for 24 hours straight, so we would like to have some short breaks from the madness.

So we've found just the thing for that: A mortal combat tournament that will include all hackathon participants.

We'll have an elimination tourney and the winner will get a cool prize. We used the game room's glass wall to handle the tournament table.
