Let's take a trip down memory lane to understand the evolution of Kazoocon and what to expect at Kazoocon 2023!
The Birth of Kazoocon: Darren Schreiber and Patrick Sullivan had a vision to create a space where technical enthusiasts, developers, engineers, and professionals from across the telecommunications spectrum could come together to explore the potential of Kazoo, 2600Hz's award-winning cloud communications platform. The first Kazoocon was held on October 14, 2013, marking the beginning of this destination for the Kazoo community.
A Technical Foundation: In its initial years, Kazoocon attracted a niche audience of technical minds, eager to explore the intricacies of Kazoo and open-source developments. The platform's capabilities evolved over time, attracting a broader user base and offering adaptable solutions for developers, resellers, SMBs, and more. From 2011 to 2017, Kazoocon matured, becoming a forum where attendees could dive deep into the technical nuances of Kazoo while also uncovering new apps and features designed to optimize their telecom platforms and boost revenue.
The First Hackathon: In 2018, the conference began with the first-ever Hackathon, a creative playground where both business minds and tech enthusiasts could collaborate, guided by 2600Hz's CTO and lead engineers. This competition challenged attendees to think outside of the box and brainstorm creative new ways to not only integrate with the Kazoo platform, but also identify opportunities for new and enhanced features sets yet to be discovered.
A Decade of Innovation and Beyond: 2023 marks the 10th anniversary of the inaugural Kazoocon. This milestone is celebrated at the Palms in Las Vegas, bringing together the Kazoo community, from its creators to industry experts worldwide.
