The second day of the AT&T Developer Summit was packed with informative track sessions, a stellar presentation about the power of community from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a keynote that focused on the advances AT&T is making in networking, innovative Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, and a look at how we interact with entertainment is changing. At the keynote, the audience voted and the winners of the Hackathon Invitational, VR/AR Challenge, and Entertainment Project were announced. Of course, there was plenty of time for fun! Attendees could unwind at a pub crawl in the expo hall where they could meet a Kinkajou, or head up to the LG Party to watch some fantastic glow-in-the-dark entertainment. We closed out the event with an incredible performance by Blink-182 powered by iHeartRadio.
