    Press Release

San Francisco, July 1st, 2013 - Globant, leader in the creation of innovative software products that appeal to global audiences, invites the development community to participate in their first webRTC Hackathon, an event that will take place on July 13th, at Globant offices (875 Howard St, 3rd floor, Suite 320, San Francisco, CA 94103).

WebRTC is a free, open project that offers developers the ability to write rich, realtime multimedia applications (such as voice calling, video chat and peer-to-peer file sharing) on the web, without requiring plugins, downloads or installs. WebRTC enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple JavaScript APIs.

The webRTC HackaBLITZ will take place on July 13th, and will feature two specialists on the matter: Juan Pedro Pereyra (Solutions Partner at Globant) and Manuel Jasso (Systems Architect at Wells Fargo Bank).

“We think we've only scratched the surface when it comes to the possibilities of new experiences and interaction, so we want to get together and make some of these ideas come to life”, explained Juan Pedro Pereyra. “We invite developers and people interested in UX, javascript or web development to join us for a day of coding, learning and sharing ideas”.

Hackathons have been part of Globant’s DNA since it’s origins. The Company has already organized and hosted more than 50 hackathons for developers and customers throughout Latin America, Europe and the US in topics like Big Data, webUI, UX, Computers Graphic, GWT and more. Furthermore, this will be the first webRTC hackathon Globant organizes in the West Coast.

The event registration is open and there is no fee attached. To register or learn more about the initiative, visit
