TV & Media Hackathon 2015

Well done to the Dublin team (Hugh, Gearoid pictured, and Abubakr and Rosario and anyone else I have missed on the earlier shifts) who are participating in the TV &  Media Hackathon from here in Ericsson LM Ireland.

The team are participating with teams in 17 other sites globally with 350 other participants (from Canada, the US in Atlanta, LA, Dallas, through Sweden, Spain, Croatia in Europe, all the way across the globe as far as China and Australia). The challenge is staggering: Create a TV application prototype! Peter and David (who’s chest is also pictured) have been providing moral as well as nutritional support (in the form of Pizza).

The guys stopped briefly to let me know that it is tough, but they are really enjoying the challenge. # TVandMediaHackathon2015 #Ericsson
