That was an intense weekend! And here’s the TADHack Global 2022 summary. You can see all the videos here. And all the pictures here.

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 these location spotlights on Colombia and Sri Lanka. Here is the video with all the local and global winners announced.

We had 450 hackers taking part from around the world, creating 52 Hacks. Radisys scored an impressive 23 hacks, well done!

Here are the Location Winners for TADHack Colombia. In third place winning $100 are XCODE. In second place winning $200 are Hybrids4.0. Due to the lack of knowledge of legal procedures in society this app provides automated help on legal issues. And in first place winning $700 are IOTOC, their goal is to help people with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) cope with daily life. There were some audio issues in the recordings (echo) that unfortunately limited global judging, but these things happen, at least the local prizes were awarded. Thank you to Yeapp for running TADHack Colombia.
