About TADHack Global

TADHack Global is a yearly worldwide hackathon about the latest internet, IT and telecoms technologies. The idea of the hackathon is to help people learn about existing technologies and work together in teams towards solving problems that matter in work, home and community life.

This year’s hack

This year’s hackathon runs across 10 to 15 cities around the world. Remote entries are also allowed, which means participants may also hack from the comfort of their own home.

Teams can already look up the sponsored technologies in telecommunications that will be used during the global TADHack 2019 and think about which to use. KPN and KPN partners' APIs will also be available in the Netherlands. Our partner VoIP Innovations, for instance, will sponsor voice and webRTC technologies.

The best hack will win a cash prize of $ 34.000. The best team of Rotterdam will be rewarded credits for at the API Store as well.

Past hack inspiration

Hacks in previous years included many interesting sponsor technologies such as programmable telecoms (voice, video, messaging), internet of things, cloud computing, robotics, machine learning, speech and face recognition, mobile payments, enterprise communications, decentralized web, blockchain, encryption and open source. In 2015, a dancing robot was among the many exciting developments made with existing technologies.
