News Telstra Hackathon

On 13-14 November, 60 of Telstra's most talented developers, designers and marketers came together to participate in the Telstra Challenge Cup - a ‘hackathon' to find innovative ways to accelerate customer advocacy. 

With 48 hours on the clock, 11 ‘dream teams' formed to rapidly prototype solutions to challenges crowd-sourced from across the company.

On behalf of the MJDF, the Telstra Foundation submitted the challenge to build a digital solution that helped MJD clients ‘bank' their speech for use once they have lost their ability to speak. And we were one of the winners! The innovative app will continue to be co-developed by Telstra, MJDF and MJDF clients.
