7 years of TADHack

TADHack Global

10-11 October

TADHack Global will run across 10+ cities around the world on the 10th and 11th October 2020, plus from the comfort of your own home. Since our founding in 2014 we accept remote entries. So whether you’re not able to make it to location, or you’re avoiding crowds because of COVID-19, you can still take part. For 7 years straight your chances of winning are the same being in-person or remote.

To win one of the many cash prizes is simple: create hacks using the global sponsors’ technologies. Click on the location you plan to attend (or be involved with remotely) to get more information about the location, schedule, resources, and register.

TADHack Global is a hackathon that helps people learn about the latest Internet, IT, and Telecoms/Communications technologies; and use those technologies to solve problems that matter.

Our hacks have included programmable telecoms (voice, video, messaging), internet of things, cloud computing, robotics, machine learning, speech and face recognition, mobile payments, enterprise communications, decentralized web, blockchain, encryption, open source, and many other technologies. Check out previous years’ hacks from 2019, 20182017, 2016, 2015 and 2014.

At TADHack Global you’ll have fun, meet amazing people from around the world, learn important new skills, and perhaps even change the world with your hack!
