TADHack-mini London

11 – 12 April London

This mini hackathon focuses on WebRTC.  Developers get access to the Global WebRTC Summit, and the TADHack-mini London winners and runners up pitch at the Global WebRTC Summit for even greater exposure and hopefully a deal to two!

TADHack 2015 - WebRTC London
Prize pot

Thank you to everyone who was involved in making TADHack mini London such an amazing event!  98 people registered for the event, and over the 2 days we had 70 people attend (both onsite and remote) generating 18 world-class hacks.

These hacks demonstrated the power of telecom application development: from controlling drones in the English country side from Idea London, to start-ups discovering and rapidly extending their applications and services to all phones, to innovative teaching applications using WebRTC.

Developer Resources


Developer Portal: Developers can get their apps information and access the complete documentation of our REST/XML/JavaScript APIs. The swagger based HTTP/REST documentation also allows developers to take immediate actions from the portal like creating SIP accounts, directly from the web portal. Each HTTP/REST action is also available in its cURL version (cURL is actually used internally to launch the HTTP request), thus allowing developers to copy/paste and test request anywhere.

Apidaze Developer How-to Video

Apidaze Tech Blog

WebRTC Server Example: A sample web application that uses APIdaze audio/video conference bridge accessible from the web using WebRTC and the PSTN (using a simple HTTP/REST with cURL).

WebRTC Audio Stats Sample App: A sample web application that shows how to gather RTCP statistics from APIdaze WebRTC audio bridge, very useful to monitor the quality of the underlying network connection.

WebRTC Call Monitor App: Monitor incoming calls placed to a DID from a web application without using SIP nor XMPP. Here, the Google Channel API is used as the signaling channel, and the presented incoming call can be answered directly from the browser using WebRTC.


PowerMedia XMS is a software media server and video MCU for real time communications in SIP and/or WebRTC domains. Use PowerMedia XMS to add audio and video features such as:
– Conferencing
– Video mixing
– Recording
– Stream insertion/playback
– IVR/DTMF detection & response
– Transcoding
– WebRTC to standard SIP media plane interworking
– Video transizing and transrating

XMS’s standard media control interface support lets it plug into other TADHacks sponsors such as Telestax. PowerMedia XMS also offers a JavaScript API for WebRTC clients and RESTful API for media server control. Take a look at Vince’s winning myVirtualGolfLesson demo for some ideas on what PowerMedia XMS can do.

Matrix (matrix.org) is an open source distributed persistent messaging fabric with eventual consistency, open federation and strong cryptographic guarantees – used for securely exchanging messages and synchronising communication history between humans, devices and services with no single points of control or data ownership. It consists of an open standard defining RESTful HTTP APIs and open source, Apache-licensed reference server and client implementations for exchanging and persisting arbitrary JSON data. It can be to exchange group chat, voice or video calls, IoT data, or any information you could wish to publish/subscribe via an internet-wide open persistent messaging network.

The reference Matrix Web Client already supports WebRTC, so an idea for a hack would be to use or take inspiration from this code in your application. Please feel free to ask questions and chat to the matrix team in the official Matrix HQ chatroom!

We will award a Parrot Bebop Drone to the two best hacks using Matrix – we are eager to see your ideas and implementations!

The Telestax challenge will evaluate Restcomm apps targeting marketing automation. The winner and the runner up app will be offered commercialization terms through the Restcomm App Store to a target audience of over 100 million subscribers.

Call tracking technologies are popular because inbound calls are the most lucrative type of lead. They are the sales reps’ most favorite kind of lead, and therefore the marketers most valuable measure to generate and track.

A couple of ideas for apps:
– WordPress plugin shortcode that renders a unique phone number for the web page its used on. Calls to such phone numbers will be tracked and correlated to their corresponding web page in Google Analytics.
– HTML5 / JavaScript Call to Action widget, which renders a phone number and a Click To Call (WebRTC) button. Mobile or Web users can call-in to discuss the product or service offered on the page where the widget is located, without having to navigate generic IVR menus. The widget will be integrated with Restcomm and a Marketing Automation Platform (e.g. HubSpot, Act-On, Spokal) to help measure conversion rates from visitors to closed won deals.
