TADHack-mini Orlando 16-17 March at Valencia College Collaborative Design Center

We’re back in Orlando, for a fun weekend hacking on Flowroute, Apidaze & VoIP Innovations. We recommend you sign-up to their free accounts and have a play.

You’ll get the best possible training in programmable telecoms from the people that built the platforms. This is a unique opportunity.

This hackathon takes place just before Enterprise Connect 2019, the largest enterprise communications event on the planet. Winners get a chance to pitch before this massive audience in a session dedicated to the TADHack winners. Its a great opportunity to promote your team (find great jobs) or your business / idea (win more deals).

Even if you’re not lucky enough to live in Orlando or be visiting Enterprise Connect, you can still take part in TADHack-mini Orlando remotely from the comfort of your own home. We’ve had many winning remote hacks over the years. Check out BurBudy to see the fun you can have!

You can see what we got up to at TADHack-mini Orlando 2018 and TADHack-mini Orlando 2017 with photos, videos and weblogs.

Regardless of your background, TADHack is here to help you…

  • Have fun! Check out previous years 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014 to see all the fun.
  • Get educated on the power of programmable telecoms – no coding skills necessary to attend!
  • Work hands-on with experts and share best practices.
  • Create hacks (prototypes) using telecom technologies to solve local or global problems that matter to you.
  • Get your innovative service / platform / idea promoted and presented to the global industry. Winners get to present their pitch at Enterprise Connect on Monday 18th March at 2PM.
  • Meet the global community of telecom innovators – they are really nice people, just a little bit geeky.
  • Learn about the programmable telecom APIs; WebRTC; communications service platforms like UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service), CCaaS (Contact Center as a Service), UC&C (Unified Communications and Collaboration); cloud communications; decentralized / distributed web; and many other web- and IT-centric service platforms

TADHack is all about learning, sharing, coding, 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, free food, and free parking 🙂

The Orlando technology and entrepreneurial communities are amazing! We’re getting lots of local support, props to all these groups:

  • Code for Orlando aims to fix problems in one of Code for America’s three Focus Groups: Safety and Justice, Economic Welfare, and Healthy communities. You can read more about the focus groups here: https://www.codeforamerica.org/what/focus-areas. Erin and Andrew (Co-Captains of Code for Orlando) are working with us to help developers use the TADHack sponsors’ technology to make a difference for Orlando!
