What is TADHACK?

The Telecom Application Development initiative referred to as TADHACK was started in 2013 as a grassroots effort to build an ecosystem focused on telecom application development.The aim of this initiative is to bring together businesses,developers, non-coders… really anyone who is interested in using telecom capabilities in their applications, services, or businesses to solve local and global problems. The TADHACK event is a global meeting place for people (hackers, hustlers and hipsters: developers, business-types, and designers) who want to learn, share, code and create using the tools and technologies available in telecommunications. Participants stand the chance to win prices determined by the panel of judges.

This year's TADHACK event is focused (but not limited to) on a number of hack challenges and ideas set by TADHack partners where you can win prizes for completing them. However, hackers are advised to find a problem that matters to them and build a solution to the problem using the global sponsor's technologies.
