Congratulations Boston Hackers & Boston.com!

Congratulations to the Boston Hackers & to The Boston Globe and the Boston.com team for putting on such an awesome event!  The Brightcove Team had a great time this past weekend at the Boston Hack Day Challenge.  We were so impressed at the level of dedication and the passion to build websites and mobile apps that will surely "Make life better in Boston".  

Hanging out at the Mass Challenge Space on Fan Pier was fantastic and the energy created from the space itself and the hackers whom spent either all weekend (literally!) or the better part of it - was amazing. A Big Thanks to the MassChallenge team!
