Hackathon Targets Orange County Web Developers
In one of the newest "hackathons" to hit Southern California, a group of companies are looking to draw Orange County software developers to a new hackathon, geared around WebRTC, the open "Web Real Time Communications" framework aimed at helping developers create voice and video chat applications. Huntington Beach-based AnyMeeting, the provider of web conferencing tools, Influxis, a live streaming and real time application hosting provider, as well as TokBox, which develops an online video platform, are all backing the Anymeeting Web RTC Hackathon, being held at Chapman University next Saturday, January 26th. The companies said they will award a grand prize of $5,000 to the winning entry into the hackathon, which takes advantage of the WebRTC standard in a project, product, or service.
