Less than 2 weeks we’ll be meeting at TADHack-mini Orlando 2019

TADHack-mini Orlando 2019In less than 2 weeks we’ll be meeting at TADHack-mini Orlando 2019.

We kick everything off at 10AM Saturday 16th March. The address, map, agenda, developer resources from Flowroute, Telesign, and VoIP Innovations are all on this page https://tadhack.com/2019/mini-orlando. We recommend you sign up to all the developer resources before the weekend, but its not essential you can do it on Saturday 16th as well.

I’ll run through the logistics, plan for the weekend, and then introduce the sponsors who are making TADHack-mini Orlando possible to briefly explain their resources.

Its going to be fun! I’m bringing a Nespresso machine, with lots of different coffee pods so you can try them out.

If you have any questions, just ask. We’re excited to see your hack 🙂

Remote Entry Procedure (you only need to read this if you’re taking part remotely)

Before TADHack-mini Orlando, please check out the sponsors’ developer resources. If you have any questions please ask.

You need to record your pitch and submit it to us by 1PM ET on Sunday 17th March. The pitch is where you explain and demonstrate your hack. Either one person or the whole team can give the pitch. The only strict limit is the video must be 5 minutes maximum. The recommended structure is:

  • Introduce you / the team (and team name if you have one)
  • Introduce the hack name and a brief description
  • List the sponsor’s resources used in the hack (which sponsors should judge your hack)
  • Explain the hack, can be done through a simple presentation / a little acting, whatever you / the team wants to do.
  • And, of course, a demo of what you created.

Please send your pitch video to info@tadhack.com by wetransfer.com. And as a back-up if you would also upload your video to YouTube, this will ensure the video will be played no matter what. Also please send an email to info@tadhack.com with the following information to ensure we get your entry judged by the right sponsors and we have all your information correct:

  • Wetransfer URL, YouTube URL
  • The team name and team members’ names (this can just be your name)
  • Hack name and a brief description of the hack
  • List the sponsor’s resources used in the hack (which sponsors should judge your hack)
  • Name and email of person nominated by the team to receive the prize (if awarded) on behalf of the team. Please discuss this ahead of time on who will receive the cash and how the cash is distributed amongst the team, usually its equally but its the team’s decision.

All hacks will be promoted on the TADHack YouTube channel, we want to write weblogs on all of them. TADHack is focused on promoting everyone involved. If you have time and are able to draft as weblog about your entry in the weeks / months after TADHack, that would be great. The suggested weblog structure is:

  • Introduce the team and their backgrounds, as well as the company if the entry is from a company;
  • Describe the hack, a deeper dive into how you created the hack and its functionality, for example the libraries used and some of the problems you faced;
  • Share any code / links / demos that are available; and
  • Any other information you think relevant.

Thank you for taking part in TADHack-mini Orlando 2019, we’re excited to see your hack 🙂
