BT Future Comms Hackathon

25th, 26th & 27th September @TechHub London (20 Ropemaker Street, EC2Y 9AR)

Are you working on the the forefront of open real-time communication platforms? BT wants your help to build the next generation! BT Innovation Week begins with a hackathon based around IMS and Future Voice, including all real time communications. Come help us explore the future of this new communication medium and we'll show you the future of our APIs!

We've got over £6000 of awesome prizes to win and not just that, the finalists will head to the top floor of the BT Tower to demo their ideas to people that can make things happen for you! Throughout the weekend we'll be based in TechHub London, the newest largest TechHub in the world, and both BT and Alcatel will be supporting the coders, developers, designers and entrepreneurs involved.

You'll be looked after all weekend with everything you need to keep you going whether it's pizza, Red Bull, fresh juices, real coffee, mineral water or even beer! If you want to sleep at the venue so you can work all night TechHub London will be open for the entire weekend but remember to bring your own bedding and roll to sleep on the floor!
