Canonical have just confirmed as the latest TADHack (Telecom Application Developer Hackathon) sponsor.
At TADSummit last year Maarten Ectors presented how Ubuntu and Juju Charms enable new telecom services to be launched in minutes; the presentations are here, and the video from the developer sessions is shown below. At TADHack developers will be able to build on an Ubuntu private cloud. We’ll have much more coming soon on what this means for developers because it’s an exciting development.
At the TADHack keynotes on Friday 6th June we will have Mark Shuttleworth (Founder of Ubuntu, technology visionary, and second space tourist) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Shuttleworth presenting his vision on how open source and the latest Cloud & mobile innovations will change the telecom industry.
We’re pleased to welcome Ubuntu / Canonical to TADHack, a global event, created and driven by the grassroots of the industry to help developers discover the latest ways to add communications to their application, services and business processes. And compete for $20k in prize money. It is unique because it brings together all relevant telecom application development tools and technologies in one event for both education and competition.
