Yet to start
We have great news! Owing to the overwhelming response to the hackathon and to ensure everyone gets a fair chance, we have decided to extend the submission deadline by a full week! The last date for submissions is now 11:55 p.m., 15th October, 2018. So you have a full extra week to refine what you’ve already built or to even build something entirely new, from scratch!
Remember - all it takes is a few hours to build something awesome with the Mitter.io API! So go ahead and build the wackiest, most innovative messaging app you can think of, and win up to ₹50,000 along with other cool goodies!
Looks like it’s your time to shine. Welcome to Mitter.io /Code – an online hackathon for developers to build quirky messaging apps and innovative chat-based experiences using the Mitter.io Chat API.
This is for all the times when you felt like WhatsApp & Messenger just don’t cut it. For all the times you wanted to build your own version – with a ton of awesome features! With the Mitter.io API, you can build your own messaging app in just a few hours…and win cash rewards totaling ₹50,000 for all that effort…
(…along with more uber-cool stuff! Like glow-in-the-dark tees, backpacks, smartphone accessories, earphones, snazzy stickers, wallets, figurines and other awesome memorabilia.)
Build an impressive messaging app that uses chat innovatively, like:
Add unique chat features, like:
And if you really have that “crazy scientist vibe,” you could even infuse your Mitter.io chat system with AI-based chatbots, location tracking features and more! You’d think it’s magic, but it’s just Mitter.io.
How? Because Mitter.io is an API-first chat platform that allows you to create anything with messaging & chat. In fact, adding new functionalties is easier than spelling ‘fnuctionalities,’ thanks to Mitter.io’s low-level semantics that allow data from third party services to seamlessly flow in and out of your chat system.

To be eligible for the competition, it is compulsory to use the Mitter.io API to build your app or service. However, you can choose to forego using the SDK and consume the API directly.
Mitter.io is a powerful messaging communication platform that offers developers the world’s first rule-based chat API.
The platform was created to provide developers complete control and total flexibility in the messaging applications and services they build – to precisely define how the app functions and customise the features that it offers. Whether it’s adding chat to your website, or building an entire app around messaging, Mitter.io allows you to create amazing experiences for every use case.
As a company and brand, Mitter.io is built atop a foundation of innovation, and a vision of empowering people to create newer, better experiences with technology. Today, the humble engineering team at Mitter.io consists of developers from across organizations like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle and more, who have come together to build an amazing tool for developers.
