Make a contribution to the community in a collaborative way.
Gather with us in Montevideo, Uruguay from February 6th to 19th.
Level of commitment: medium/high
Time: 1 month
Level of commitment: low
Time: up to 1 week
The first meeting of the year
This edition is special, as it will be a warm-up for our amazing Summer Camp: Coding Experience.
👉🏼Marco Vidonis from Nimble Ape Ltd.
👉🏼Will Law from Akamai Technologies
They will talk about: Webrtc and CMCD.
We will create a meeting (in our discord community) with all those interested in the projects. We will define which way to go and create a brainstorming of ideas.
Starting building the platform.
During this period the Hackathon participants perform different technical challenges that will help to complement the Summer Project.
To Contribute: to provide a open-source CMCD validator that any video dev can use.
To Learn: that everyone who participates, at the end of the summer camp, have learned the standard through a practical experience.
To Evolve: enable more people to contribute in more ways to the CMCD standard through this experience and the exchange of ideas with others. Ideally contributing for future revisions of the standard!
A beautiful closing of the Summer Camp with our lovely meetups, telling how the experience was lived both in the Coding experience and in the Cultural Exchange.
We’ll be building a platform for hybrid and remote events. The Front-End will be in React and we want to make it Back-End agnostic, so that users should be able to choose whichever they prefer. For example, they might want to use Mux, or run their own Janus SFU.
The basic features of the platform should likely be the following:
– Landing page with the current and next events
– API (CRUD) interface for events
– Presentation mode (stage) – Chat and Q&A section (for all users)
– Audio and video controls
– Record the event (this might be tricky, depending on how we want to do it… Back-End platforms like Mux might provide this)

This exciting project is all about validating the implementation of CMCD (Common Media Client Data) in any video player. CMCD is a cutting-edge technology that allows for more efficient video streaming, and we’re here to put it to the test.
Built with love and passion for the video-dev community, our project aims to provide a fun and interactive way for video developers to verify their CMCD integration. With the CMCD-validator tool available on GitHub, participants can easily check if their video player is correctly implementing CMCD, ensuring smooth and seamless video playback for their users.
For more information on the project and why we chose CMCD, be sure to check out Will Law’s talk at the Montevideo Tech meetup.
Last year our friend Ruud van der Linden surprised us! He packed his bags and traveled to Uruguay to work and connect with us.
Why? Because remote work is lonely and he saw an opportunity to generate new relationships, share experiences and, not least, escape from the cold (bye, winter! Hello, Uruguayan summer!)
This trip inspired us to spread this energy in our community!
That’s why we envisioned the Summer Camp: cultural exchange, an event created by and for video devs that invites us to meet face to face in Montevideo, Uruguay, to continue nurturing and developing this great community.
Our vision with the Summer Camp: Cultural Exchange is to generate an incredible experience with a collaborative work space to connect, cultural exchanges, and the generation of new relationships.

«I love the idea, I love the people I already know from MonteVideo Tech, and I think it can be a great learning for both sides.»
«I think the Summer Camp is a great opportunity for self development and to get to know like-minded people working in the same space, as well as to learn about the Uruguayan culture. I like the idea of working on open source projects during the camp and sharing the results of the work through meetups and videos.»
