TADHack is for Everyone: it’s an event where people (e.g. students, graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, product managers, IT Managers, coders and non-coders, interested individuals, and subject-matter-experts) collaborate on a software project. Occasionally, there is a hardware component, for example we’ve had some impressive IoT (Internet of Things) hacks over the years, including a robot dancing La Macarena using decentralized web technology.
TADHack Global is made possible thanks to hundreds of people around the world who love technology, and are excited by the democratization of technologies so anyone can use them. They run locations because they want to educate, inspire, and make a difference in people’s lives and the communities they live in. The TAD in TADHack stands for Technology Application Development.
Our hacks include programmable telecoms (voice, video, messaging, phone ID, mobile identity), blockchain, encryption, authentication, trust, Ethereum, internet of things, cloud computing, robotics, machine learning, speech and face recognition, trust ratings, mobile payments, enterprise communications, decentralized web, open source, and many other technologies. Check out previous years’ hacks from 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014.
We’ve helped refugees find lost family members, farmers irrigate their fields better, keep online discussions civil, teams launch companies based on their hacks, the homeless affordably access legal services, improve emergency aid distribution, with thousands of hacks over the years.
At TADHack Global you’ll be able to solve problems that matter to you through mashing up identity, trust, programmable telecoms / communications, and fraud protection from Simwood, Telesign, and VoIP Innovations. We’re really excited at what we’re going to see from around the world, it’s going to be revolutionary!
