- The first was a two month online ideation period wherein participating teams developed skills for Alexa and shared with the publishing store. Each submission went through a week of testing and evaluation.

1. Evangelizing developers worldwide of their APIs and SDK

Outcome: 2231 attendees - 501 projects - 3 winners
"I had reached out to Hackathon.com to organise Vodafone’s first Global Hackathon and they delivered successfully across the board.... I look forward to more Hackathons with them."
“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.”
