Bandwidth’s Global Hackathon

Bandwidth normally holds hackathons within its Republic Wireless team to promote product development and innovation, but this time, it’s going global. In partnership with TADHack, Raleigh-based Bandwidth is sponsoring a two-day event at its headquarters for developers to bring to life new ideas in communications technology and using platforms and APIs provided by the firm and other sponsors. It’s happening at the same time as events in Chicago, London, Dublin, Madrid, New Delhi and Melbourne and prizes are involved. Though it’s not clear this is a talent recruitment event, jobs are open at the firm and Bandwidth will clearly have bunches of local developers within its walls showing their skills.
