Organize Hackathon NBC Universal

When we start planning for a hackathon at NBCUniversal, Hackathon.com is the only partner we think of. Hackathon.com has been a trusted partner of ours since 2015 and together we’ve successfully executed about a dozen hackathons – both with internal and external participants. What impressed me the most is their deep expertise in the space as well as their connections within the various developer communities. The team we work is attentive, extremely competent, organized, proactive and most importantly able to adapt to the ever-changing needs before and during a hackathon. For any company out there who is looking to organize and execute a hackathon, must talk to Hackathon.com as a part of their due diligence.

We worked with Hackathon.com to launch the new Bixby, by hosting a Developer Showcase. The Developer Showcase unveiled new ways for developers to bring a more conversational, personal and useful intelligent assistant experiences to life.
