On September 23-24, the Global Telecom Applications Developers Hackathon will be hosted by the IIT RTC Lab in the Idea Shop on IIT’s Main Campus. TADHack Global will be the world’s largest telecom-focused hackathon for the 4th year running. The Idea Shop will be one of over 30 locations running parallel instances around the world.
You can check out the demo pitches from last year, including several prize-winning hacks, on the TADHack Global 2016 – Chicago YouTube Playlist. Besides getting educated on the power of telecom app development, there will be lots of great food and love (prizes) to share! Participation in TADHack is free of charge, but requires a separate Registration in addition to registering for the Main Conference.
Monday, Sept. 25 we will be offering two, half-day tutorials covering the latest topics in real-time communications, taught by leading industry experts. A Full-conference registration entitles you to take one or both of these without extra charge. Alternatively, for those who wish to participate in the Tutorials, but are unable to attend the Main Conference, the tutorials may be purchased separately for a fee of $75. Registration for the Tutorials, either in conjunction with a Full Conference Pass, or on a stand-alone basis can be accomplished on the Register page of the conference website. More details on the specific content and instructors will be available shortly.
