28 – 29 March Orlando
It’s a hackathon about using the Apidaze, Asterisk, Inference Solutions, Intelepeer, and Simwood resources to solve problems that matter to you in your work, home and community life, see bottom of this webpage for more info on their resources.
Anyone who’s interested, web dev skills will help.
To showcase the power of sponsors’ resources, network with great people, and possibly win some of the $5k in prizes + other goodies (free access to Enterprise Connect 2020 – previous winners can tell you about all the fun stuff).
But I’m going to Code Camp!
We’re stretching the TADHack agenda so you can still attend Code Camp, then come over to TADHack on Saturday late afternoon / evening, and have more time on Sunday. We’re going to help you have a jam-packed and very successful weekend!
But what about COVID-19?
We’ve always accepted remote entries. So whether you’re not able to make it to Orlando in-person, or you’re avoiding crowds because of COVID-19, you can still take part. I’ll be in Orlando looking forward to all your entries.
Communications is now democratized so anyone can program with it. You can add programmable voice, calling, text messages (SMS and IM), audio and video messages, video calling, faxing (yep, fax still exists), secure communications and authentication, decentralized communications, mobile payments, and much much more through easy to use APIs/SDKs, and even easier to use GUIs. Programmable Telecoms is everything to do with communications between people and things that can be controlled by software (on your phone/laptop, in the cloud, or in your business).
For 2020 we’re adding a theme, a focus, for the hackathon on intelligent agents / assistants (also known as bots) using conversational interfaces. We have the support of renowned expert Dan Miller, Opus Research. Who will be joining us for the judging on Sunday, and supporting us in the run-up to the event. More coming on this soon.
A TADHack is an event in which people (e.g. students, graphic designers, project managers, product managers, IT Managers, Enterprise Connect attendees, computer programmers, interested individuals, and subject-matter-experts) collaborate on a software project focused on programmable telecoms. You do not need to be a coder to take part.
For Enterprise Connect attendees you get hands-on experience with communication APIs, intelligent agents / assistants, UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service), CCaaS (Contact Center as a Service), UC&C (Unified Communications and Collaboration), and much more. For those not attending EC you get to build your portfolio of skills in programmable telecoms that will be in demand for the next decade.
We encourage people who cannot attend TADHack in person in Orlando (or who have shut themselves indoors because of covid19) to take part remotely 😉
Winners and runners up from TADHack-mini Orlando can pitch at Enterprise Connect for even greater exposure! We have a session dedicated to the TADHack Winners on Monday, March 30 at 2:00 to 2:45 PM.
TADHack is all about learning, sharing, coding (you can even avoid this with some of the GUIs), creating, and most importantly having fun with a diverse group of people. And if that is not enough to entice you, we have lots of cash prizes, free entrance, and free food.
