24-Hour Hackathon - The Future of Television

Good old TV has been around for almost 100 years. The very first demonstration of television was held in 1926 and its inventor was John Logie Baird - we'll let you google more details about this. The story is quite inspiring!

As opposed to other gadgets in our life, TVs have pretty much been there from the beginning. Though we couldn’t imagine it anymore, we all started with the black and white TV, with only 1 channel and no opportunity to pause content, skip publicity, select our favorite shows. We know – spooky right? Who can imagine that anymore?

Influenced by the era of the social media, awesome movies and TV series apps, our viewing experience has changed quite a lot too and is bound to undergo even more changes as technology advances at high speed.

This brings us here [Drumroll please]

The 24-hour Hackathon on November 3rd

Brought to you by Codecamp, the super-awesome learning event in the IT community, and TiVo, the company that invented the DVR, thus changing TV forever.

Hackathon Goals

You'll be using technology, creativity, agility and planning skills to come up with cheap solutions (apps, ideas, campaigns, etc.) that could take television as we know it to the next level.

The bottom line:
Thinking outside the (TV) box. Making Smart TVs even smarter.
Briefly put, do you ever think about the future of television? Then, let's Hack about it!
