TADHack mini Japan

TADHack-mini Japan

13 – 14 February Kawasaki

Our Japan mini hackathon will run just before the WebRTC Conference in Tokyo on the 16 and 17 February. Winners will be able to pitch to the main conference – a mix of industry leaders, technology vendors, developers, enterprises, web companies and telcos from around the world. The event will be run in Japanese, with occasional translation for those unable to speak Japanese. Pitches can be given in either Japanese or English.

Thank you – to all who attended TADHack mini Japan and made the event such a success! A big thank you to our sponsors, NTT Advanced Technologies, Skyway, Matrix, and Telestax for making this event and all it’s great prizes possible.  We had an unprecedented near 100% turn out ratio on Valentine’s weekend among those registered to attend, that’s hardcore. We had some unique winning apps: smart home robot, real-time map-enabled tourist guide, emergency worker help line, konomo face (favorite face) chatting, and apps to help you when you are running late. You can read more about our event and its winners on our blog, view photos, and watch videos of the event using the links below.

Developer Resources

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.

Many open source clients, including Vector and Matrix Console Web, already support WebRTC – so an idea for a hack would be to use or take inspiration from these in your application. You can find more information about Matrix clients here.

Also feel free to ask questions and chat to the matrix team in the official Matrix HQ chatroom!

WebRTC specific resources:
VoIP spec
WebRTC in the AngularJS webclient:
WebRTC Service
Matrix Call
Room Controller

We will award a Trossen Robot to the best hack using Matrix – we are eager to see your ideas and implementations.
