Thank you – to everyone who attended TADHack mini Orlando 2017, especially our sponsors: Cisco Spark / Tropo, Flowroute, Matrix, Ring Central, Telestax with partners DataArt and Dialogic, Temasys, and Vidyo.io, for making this event possible! Also a big thank you to the Orlando technology and entrepreneurial communities, you were are amazing and we received a ton of local support.

TADHack-mini Orlando delivered on our motto of “TADHack is for Everyone”.  We had many first-timers creating impressive hacks, such as: elder connected care, message-based legal aid, emergency assistance, personal information delivery bots, translator bots for a multi-lingual work place, an Amazon Lex hack, and many more.  Several winning hacks required little coding, this is an exciting trend: telecom tools and platforms enable non-coders to easily create innovative solutions to problems. The winners also presented at Enterprise Connect, sharing their creations with a large global audience, and demonstrating the power of programmable telecoms.

Developer Resources

Cisco Spark makes it easy for teams to stay in sync, as conversations flow seamlessly between messages, video calls and real-time whiteboarding sessions. All this taking place in virtual meeting rooms that live for a few hours while others become permanent fixtures of your team’s workflow with titles like “Daily Standup”, “Build Status” or “TADHack-mini London where awesome WebRTC code gets written!”

The initial set of Spark APIs is primarily about room management and getting content in and out of Spark: create rooms, invite people, search for people, post message, get messages history, and be notified in real-time as new messages are posted by others…

API documentation: https://developer.ciscospark.com/quick-reference.html

Interact with Spark API in a snatch:
List Rooms
Get Person Details
Search for People

Tutorials: https://developer.ciscospark.com/samples-tutorials.html

24/7 Support via the Spark Room “/join #spark4devs”, or via email: https://developer.ciscospark.com/support.html

Get in-depth information about the Flowroute APIs to quickly integrate calling and messaging capabilities into your apps. You’ll find guides, documentation, use cases and SDKs for the Phone Number Management and Messaging APIs.

The fastest way to get started is to sign up for a free account, and then email us your Tech Prefix so we can add some test credit to your Flowroute account – don’t forget to mention you are going to be at TADHack-mini in Orlando.

The Flowroute team is available in advance of TADHack-mini in Orlando to discuss ideas or answer questions by email or through Intercom on http://www.flowroute.com – by clicking on the conversation bubble in the lower right-hand corner.

Matrix 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 used 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. VoIP calls in Matrix are done using the WebRTC standard.

Many clients and services have been written based on the Matrix open standard – including Riot, a feature-rich open source client written by the Matrix.org team.

There are also several Open Source SDKs that make it easy to create new clients and application services – and guides to get you started!

In previous TADHacks we have seen hacks that extend Matrix to existing services such as SIP/IMS, real-time translation of text messages, chatting via sign language, and even making a robot dance the Macarena with commands sent through Matrix!

The Matrix team is available to discuss ideas or answer questions in the Matrix TADHack room – please come and chat!
