Today we're wrapping up the 2018 TADHack Global Hackathon! Congrats to the organizers, our co-sponsor, and the participants for making this another successful hackathon. There were over 3,000 participants and through their hard work over the weekend the teams were able to complete over 100 hacks.
The teams built solutions that ranged from a smart motorcycle rider airbag and jacket, to an encrypted prescription service, to an SMS notification system that monitors humidity, temperature, movement, and noise. Though all of the hacks were unique and well designed, there could only be a few winners.
We chose Global Winners as well as Location Winners for South Florida. Our decision was based on the creativity, innovation, and real world application of their solutions. We're proud to say that these services were all built using our Apidaze communications APIs. Be sure to check the links to watch the pitch videos for each solution.
We are pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with KPN, a leading Dutch telecommunications company and IT service provider. As a result of this partnership, our CPaaS product, Apidaze, is featured in the KPN API Store. KPN customers in the Netherlands can access Apidaze products such as voice, SMS, and WebRTC to help them harness the power of programmable communications in their business operations.
Our Apidaze product enables users to create custom communications solutions by utilizing simple APIs for voice, SMS, and WebRTC. Apidaze Voice is the first Apidaze API that KPN brought to market. Developing communications solutions with Apidaze Voice lets KPN customers go to market quicker and with more innovative voice services for a wide range of applications.
