Kandy.io recently participated in the Canto.org Conference in Puerto Rico and brought home a number of awesome social good hack solutions. Competing teams started over two months ago to battle it out on who would win the opportunity of getting flown into the finals at the conference.
Once they arrived in beautiful San Juan, the selected teams had 48 hours to complete their best solutions for the two challenges listed below. Additionally, the apps they designed had to have a socially relevant aspect to them, which they only discovered at the start of the hackathon.
Of the twenty+ teams who originally applied, the following four were selected to participate in the onsite hackathon:
CANTO's secretary general, Teresa Wankin, previously commented “As we have seen over the last few years, single function communication devices, have been replaced by multi-function real-time communications software applications. Most of the innovation in communications is now taking place at the software level, and we have to position our region to be drivers of that innovation. And from what we have seen, the Kandy Platform allows developers to create sophisticated real-world communications applications with very little effort, and we are happy that GENBAND has made it available to us for this competition.”
