Context.IO was at Hack the Midwest in Kansas City this weekend. Hack the Midwest brought together 30 teams who hacked for 24 hours straight to create innovative demos. The hackathon was held at Sporting Park, a soccer-themed sports arena in the swanky member’s club. Context.IO was joined by AlchemyAPI, Dwolla, Iron.IO, Mashery, Sendgrid, TokBox, and Twilio as API sponsors. The participants had a full stable of powerful APIs to play with to win some great prizes. Context.IO offered a stack-o-cash – $500 bucks – for best use of our API.
The team that won our prize created an app called Bark.IM. Bark.IM keeps a secure, watchful eye on your email. It delivers your important mail via text message instantly and in real time. It’s a very slick and polished app! Congrats again on a super job, team Bark.IM!
