TechCrunch Disrupt Contest Winner: Slides.IO

Thank you to all the developers who submitted applications for the OpenTok TechCrunch contest. There were 13 applications in total, and they were all fantastic. Everybody should be proud of what they created.

With that said, congratulations Kyle Powers on his winning entry Slides.io!

Slides.io uses OpenTok to create and broadcast presentations online. Here’s Slides.io in Kyle’s own words:

Slides.io is a web application for creating modern presentations. Presentations aren’t just a deck of slides anymore, and Slides.io understands this.

Straightforward, content-focused authoring tools provide efficient deck creation. Themes make them beautiful. Presentations are created in pure HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3.

Presenters distribute a URL to the presentation, which includes live chat and video streaming provided by TokBox. Video archiving is forthcoming.

Kyle will be demoing Slides.io in the Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco on September 12-14. Slides.io is currently in beta, but will be launching in full leading up to the event.

We’d also like to mention our runner-up Wello.co. Wello brings live personal fitness to the web using OpenTok.

Wello is an online marketplace for fitness instruction delivered live using the OpenTok API for video connections. We make it possible to workout whenever and wherever it is convenient for both trainer and client.

Congrats again to everybody and we’d love to see you all again for our next contest soon!
