TADHack-mini Orlando at Avaya ENGAGE 2021

11 – 12 December 2021

It’s a hackathon about using Avaya’s resources to solve problems that matter to you. This year’s theme, Succeeding in a Hybrid World, focuses on answering the following question: “How do we make the Hybrid World more authentic, more engaging… more real?”

Anyone who’s interested, although web dev skills will help. You can take part in person or remote (in the comfort of your own home) – it’s a hybrid hackathon. When you sign up, you’ll also receive an invite to the Avaya Spaces Hackathon room, so you can meet and chat with everyone involved.

With Avaya’s development tools, anyone can design and program communications. Pitch applicants can compete to win more than $15,000 in prizes and other goodies. To showcase the power of Avaya OneCloud CPaaS, network with great people- we’ll provide great food as well as access to the Avaya ENGAGE Welcome Party at Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort Beach & Cabana Pool. And there’s more! Winners can present their hack to the 16,000 strong Avaya ENGAGE community on Monday.

What is Avaya ENGAGE?
Avaya ENGAGE-hosted by Avaya and the International Avaya User Group (IAUG))—is the premier event for the future of communications. Avaya ENGAGE brings you four days of workshops, inspirational speakers, and experts.

What does ‘Succeeding in a Hybrid World’ mean?
Our work, social, and community lives are now split across in-person and online. People are less often in the office, especially on Mondays and Fridays. Even something as simple as watching your child swim at a meet has now become an online experience, at least we’re now having swim meets. How can we make the Hybrid World more authentic, more engaging, more real? We challenge you to show us!
