All of us enjoyed our first Hackathon which was in 2022 and decided to organize new Hackathons in each quarter of 2023. This weekend will be more than Real-Time thanks to participants who have been developing streaming applications or plugins on top of Ant Media Server.
Real-Time Streaming Hackathon is happening now and some teams will win up to $6000 in prizes but more importantly, all of the teams will have the opportunity to promote and sell their applications or plugins on Ant Media Marketplace. To sum up, everyone will win! I know you are already looking for where to register. Well, here you go!
The challenge is simple and the limit is the sky! Participants will develop an interactive streaming application or plugin on top of the Ant Media Server. Judges will vote on applications/plugins considering below criteria:
- Ready to use application/plugin
- Proved concept (user actions need to be correctly affected the stream)
- The more interactive, the better
- User-friendly user interface
- Creative, innovative features
- Open Source
