TADHack Satellite at IIT’s Idea Shop

The IIT Real-Time Communications Lab is excited to be hosting a Satellite event for the Telecom Application Developers Hackathon (TADHack ) from 9:00 AM Friday, June 6 to 11:30 AM Saturday, June 7 in the Idea Shop.

TADHack is the ONLY GLOBAL MEETING place for Developers who want to learn, share, code and create across the breath of tools and technologies available to developers in telecommunications. TADHack will be live-streamed from Madrid enabling teams to compete in parallel at remote Satellite events, such as the one taking place at Idea Shop.

Discover the latest ways to add communications to your application, services and business processes; listen to expert speakers from around the world; see amazing new technologies; and meet the international community of telecom app developers innovating in communications.

The Hackathon will have $30,000 in total Prize Money to be won for the best ideas across the telecom application development themes. While teams participating at the IIT Satellite event will be eligible for the entire prize pool, a minimum of one prize has been reserved to be awarded to a team participating locally.

You are free to work on your ideas before the event, as well as generate ideas at the event from all the networking. We’ll be running webinars on the development theme before the event, so you have an opportunity to think up ideas beforehand, so there’s no pressure during the event. We would prefer you have fun, network, and discover lots of exciting possibilities made possible through TADHack.

Food will be provided throughout the event, and student registrations are free of charge.
