LiveChat Hackathon #3

Create the future of chat
platforms

Idea

A couple of years ago we’d never expect that one day we will conclude that LiveChat is a thing of the past.

Sure, we still think it’s the most convenient, user-friendly and efficient way of chatting under the sun. We still think that its great advantage is that it frees you from all the installation sweat and setup nightmare.

We just don’t think anymore that this is a solution for everyone.

It turned out that we underestimated our customers. We didn’t know how many great ideas on LiveChat features and integrations they will have. We had no idea how creative they are, and eager are they to adapt our app for their needs.

We wanted them to put their ideas into action, so we decided to build a new, innovative, open live chat app. We created chat.io, a chat platform with open and extended API that gives its users a chance to transform their ideas into real features.

During the 3rd LiveChat Hackathon, you will turn into a chat.io creative user. Can’t wait to see your ideas!

Success_Story

Me and my friend came across the LiveChat’s Hackathon on Facebook. The topic of chat industry was pretty cool to work on, so without further ado we decided to participate.

Next day we were coding our supreme integration. It was a payment button for customer, who want to tip consultant inside the chat. Sometimes there is a situation when your support consultant is working for you till late hours. It would be great to have opportunity to reward such person. Don’t you think?

After few hours of coding our backend and mockuping a chat we finished our prototype. We used LiveChat’s Visitor API to create a chat with our button and paypal.me as a peer-2-peer payment system. There was also our API on the .NET core for the purpose of matching consultant and user data and generating payment links. Thanks to the tremendous support from LiveChat’s developers our prototype was working. Then as a final gesture I tipped my teammate through chat window for all the effort he made.

If you want to have fun and create something useful join us in the upcoming Hackathon. We guarantee great atmosphere and exciting challenge.
