AnyMeeting to Host WebRTC Hackathon Event in 2013

Small Business Web Conferencing Provider Promotes Innovation in Open WebRTC Framework, Invites Participants and Sponsors

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2012) - AnyMeeting, a leading provider of web conferencing for small business, today announced plans to host a hackathon in Orange County, CA based around the emerging technology known as WebRTC. To be held in mid-January, the "AnyMeeting WebRTC Hackathon" encourages engineers, designers, product managers, marketers and entrepreneurs to come together and work on building a new project, product or service involving WebRTC in an intense 12-hour hack session.

Promising to be a major disruptive technology, WebRTC is an open framework for the web that enables Real Time Communications in the browser using JavaScript. It includes the fundamental building blocks for high quality communications on the web such as network, audio and video components used in voice and video chat applications. This week, AnyMeeting is engaging with thought leaders across the industry at the WebRTC Conference and Expo in San Francisco.

"As one of the leading providers of web conferencing and online meeting technology for small businesses, AnyMeeting is passionate and excited about new technology that enables us to further our company's mission -- bring the power of online meetings to everyone. Personally, as a coder myself, I love the chance to meet other technologists and develop cutting edge functionality that takes full advantage of the latest developments in our industry," said Costin Tuculescu, founder and CEO of AnyMeeting.

The hackathon event will begin with a quick keynote address by AnyMeeting's CEO and a guest speaker. Contestants will then break into teams to plan and develop their projects. At the end of the session, each team will have time to present and answer questions about their project, and an awards ceremony will follow.

Always wanting to inspire the great spirit of innovation and foster competition, AnyMeeting is offering a grand prize of $5,000 to the winning team, as well as smaller prizes to two runner ups. Sponsorship opportunities will also be available to companies that are interested in participating.
