Liberty Global's Appathon

A few weeks ago Piksel found out that one of our largest clients, Liberty Global (LGI), were holding an Appathon at their annual tech summit. The details of the Appathon were sketchy, but the premise seemed to be: turn up at a set location and build an app over a couple of days. This sounded like the sort of challenge we thrive on, especially with the Appathon being held in one of the world's premier party locations, Amsterdam... 

So four brave web developers from York put themselves forward and were entered as the Piksel team; Chris O'Brien, Phil Benson, Horacio Ayestaran and me (Dave Moorhouse).

As the Appathon quickly approached the finer details of the competition were still vague; mainly what did LGI actually want us to build (TV app, tablet app, phone app etc) and which technologies, apart from a set top box SDK, would we be using. In true York fashion a number of planning sessions were held over a beer, these sessions oozed creativity (especially after the first hour or so) and by the time the team boarded the plane the team were confident that they had planned a killer app to develop.

After landing in Amsterdam, such was the teams determination to achieve great things at the following day's Appathon, an additional planning session was held that evening. In fact the session triggered such passion and excitement that the session ran until roughly 5am - providing just enough rest time before the 9am kick off briefing at the city’s incredible Ziggo Dome.

Fresh faced and mentally alert, the Piksel team listened to the Appathon briefing. Slowly it was explained that the task was to create a pure set top box based application for the companies Horizon device. To some surprise, the team quickly realised that their killer app was so far away from what LGI were actually expecting it was time to start completely from scratch. Some teams may have closed their laptops at this stage and jumped on the next flight home, but this was the kind of challenge which Piksel thrives on - it was time to get some fresh air, a strong coffee and plan an app from the ground up.

The concept for "Let's Watch" was born. The aim was to bring social groups together while watching linear tv, allowing them to watch together and send real time feedback in the form of "like", "dislike" and "surprise". The example being that as you tune to a show, let's say Breaking Bad, you receive a list of people from your group who are currently watching and how they are reacting at that time - allowing you to jump into chats over social media or just know who to discuss the show with the next day in the office.
