DeveloperWeek Hackathon 2017

February 6, 2017 by

Wowza is sponsoring the 2017 DeveloperWeek Hackathon on February 11-12 in San Francisco, as par of the DeveloperWeek Conference and Festival. The hackathon gives developers of varying experiences with the opportunity to use our suite of dev tools and work alongside our streaming experts. Join us at the hackathon using the code DW17-OPEN when you register. You can also schedule a meeting with one of our developers or architects throughout the week here.

To provide help getting started, these are a few sample projects we have put together demonstrating the capabilities of Wowza developer tools in building streaming applications or adding streaming to existing workflows.


Wowza GoCoder SDK

The Wowza GoCoder SDK enables you to quickly build an application turning any iOS or Android device in to a professional grade streaming camera as the input to a streaming project workflow.

Sign up for a GoCoder SDK trial license to get started.

After installation:
Try the iOS Objective-C and Swift sample GoCoder SDK apps demonstrating how to capture, broadcast and adjust settings using internal device cameras and microphones.
Try the iOS Swift project demonstrating how to stream an MP4 stored locally.
Try the Android sample app demonstrating the capabilities of the Android GoCoder SDK.


Wowza Streaming Cloud

Wowza Streaming Cloud is the streaming platform, hosted and managed by Wowza, as a service enabling you to quickly and easily build web streaming applications or add streaming to existing applications.

Sign up for a Wowza Streaming Cloud trial account to get started in minutes.

After you have created your account you will be able to request an API key.



Add access keys.



Then access the Wowza Streaming Cloud Developer Sandbox environment ( The sandbox enables you to access interactive API documentation, code and test against the Wowza Steaming Cloud REST API without incurring any usage charges.


Note: you will need to request separate API keys for the production and sandbox environment.


After you have your API and access keys, try the Wowza Streaming Cloud Ruby Example Project to build a workflow and deliver live streams using the REST API.
