RingCentral Bots Challenge

Challenge outline

In this online hackathon, RingCentral is inviting you to build a chatbot from scratch or port your existing messaging, virtual assistant, customer service, or e-commercial bots from other frameworks to support the RingCentral Glip bot framework for $10,000 in total cash prizes! If you can enrich your bot with additional RingCentral APIs including SMS, MMS, Data, Recordings among others, the higher your chance of winning.


RingCentral Glip is an intuitive team messaging and collaboration app that lets you better manage information and application overload, overflowing email inboxes, and the resulting sense of disorganization. With file sharing, video and screen sharing, full voice calling, and built in task management, Glip empowers you and your team to work better together and be more productive - all from a single hub that puts you at the center of communication.

With a complete set of open APIs, and support for popular bot frameworks, RingCentral Glip enables developers to embed deeper collaboration and task automation functionalities into key business workflows and apps, connecting cloud apps across the enterprise.
