Secure Mobile Communications Hackathon

Cloudonix, TelcoBridges, and Simwood announce their joint hackathon to be held at CommCon 2019.

April 15, 2019 (New York / London / Montreal, Canada / Bristol ) Cloudonix, the game-changing cloud communications backbone; TelcoBridges, a leader in the design and development of carrier grade, high performance, and high-density SBCs; and Simwood, an infrastructure-based wholesale provider of voice & messaging services in the UK and USA are pleased to announce their joint Secure Mobile Communications Hackathon to be held during CommCon 2019. CommCon 2019, a conference that brings together the VoIP and WebRTC developer communities for a one of a kind event where they share updates about the state of the art in the industry, will be held July the 7th until the 11th at Latimer Estate, Buckinghamshire, UK.

This hackathon will include services from each of the three organizations. Participants will have two and a half hours to meet as many of the challenges as possible.

To add an element of surprise (and level the playing field), the challenges will be given out at the start of the hackathon. At the end of the three hours, each team will demonstrate their ideas and accomplishments to a panel of judges who will score each against a number of criteria. Prizes to be awarded on the last day of CommCon as part of the closing ceremony.

“It's amazing to see the ideas that supporters of CommCon come up with to give our attendees the best conference experience. CommCon is run by the community for the community and just wouldn't be possible without companies like Cloudonix, TelcoBridges and Simwood.“, said Dan Jenkins, organizer of CommCon.

“We are excited to see what people can build, the problems they can solve, and the innovations they can dream,” said Nir Simionovich, CEO at Cloudonix. “We are looking forward to sponsoring the CommCon happy hour for the second year in a row”.

“Participating in a hackathon is a great way to learn new skills, demo new products and can be quite fun,'' said Alan Percy, Senior Director of Product Marketing at TelcoBridges, Inc. “We are looking forward to seeing new communications innovations come to life at CommCon.” “Simwood was honoured to support CommCon in its first year as Platinum Sponsor, and we’re proud to do so again. The calibre of attendees is very high; just the sort of people who need a stable, secure yet agile carrier like Simwood for their creations. I’m excited to see what they create,” said Simon Woodhead, CEO at Simwood.

The hackathon team looks forward to seeing you at CommCon 2019.
