Bandwidth, one of the nation's fastest-growing communications companies, today announced the winners of TADHack Raleigh, a two-day developer hackathon where teams competed to build the next great advancement in communications technology.

The possibilities from embedded voice and messaging are endless. This past weekend's event only scratched the surface of what this technology can do, and we're looking forward to seeing the innovation that grows as a result of this competition."
The entries were judged by their creativity, readiness for market and technical quality.
