About TADHack

TADHack was requested by the attendees of the first ever TADSummit in the closing conference discussion on what we should do next.  TADHack is here to help you discover the latest ways to add communications to your application, services and business processes.  It is unique because it brings together all relevant telecom application development tool and technologies in one event. Telecom application developers exist and are grossly underserved by the telecom industry. They include: telco independent software vendors, system integrators, enterprise developers and many other developers building apps that live either in the core telecom network, enterprise data centers or public cloud. Telecom application developers extend operator infrastructure in a variety of ways using SS7, SIP, Web APIs, and many new cloud-based technologies. There are hundreds of thousands of developers out there building commercial telecom services and applications all solving similar problems, face common challenges technically and commercially, and are key to Telecom’s future survival. TADHack recognizes the community and aims to promote it globally for the benefit of the telecom application developer community.
