Welcome to TADHack Global 2022

This is the 9th year of TADHack, we began in 2014. We’re immensely proud of the many people involved in TADHack and all they’ve achieved. For example, check out the location spotlights on Colombia and Sri Lanka.

Thank you to everyone who has already registered for TADHack. At the end of September we’ll have the full details of the resources you can hack on, and enable sign-up to those resources. 

Check out the TADHack Guide if you have any questions.

For 2022 we have 3 excellent global sponsors, in addition to many local sponsors:

  • STROLID is leading the creation of vCon, a standard for virtual conversations. Like vCard or iCal, this will become the way the web shares conversation. This is an important standard for all developers, and you’ll learn about it before anyone else at TADHack. We all have tens if not hundreds of conversations every day. Yet most are lost because there is no standard way to store and share them.
  • Jambonz is an open source CPaaS, think Twilio for free. For TADHack they are partnering with Cognigy, a leader in conversation automation. Cognigy has integrated jambonz into its Voice Gateway product, and between Cognigy’s low code platform and Jambonz you’ll be able to easily create powerful voice bots.  See https://www.cognigy.com/about for more details on the Cognigy platform.
  • Radisys’ Engage Digital Platform has an excellent drag and drop development platform,  as well as offering APIs and SDKs. They exposes lots of resources across communications, speech recognition, natural language processing, and video analysis. They want to help you bring your hacks to market. Your hack from TADHack could become your side hustle, and perhaps even your main business. And this news is hot off the press: there’s an additional $5k prize for the best hack using Radisys!

TADHack Amsterdam will now be virtual. You do not need to be based in Amsterdam, it’s open to anyone in the Benelux area. On Wednesday 19th at Network X we’ll have a session dedicated to TADHack. Only in-person presenters are allowed. I’m hoping to have a few in-person presenters who live in Amsterdam or travel over from Berlin. If you can not make it in-person, I could give your pitch and demo. Where there’s a will there’s a way!

If you’ve not done so already, please register for TADHack
