‘We’re excited by all the registrations coming in, you will meet a diverse group: students, enterprise developers, small companies and start-ups with cool services, developers from well-known brands, to world-renowned developers. We also have remote hacks coming in from around the world including the US and Indonesia. We have a couple of exciting announcements coming up – new sponsors to hack to and a book launch – but more on them next week.’
‘The sponsors of this TADHack-mini are Apidaze, Google, Kandy.io, Matrix.org,Telestax, Truphone, and University College London. To win one of the seven $1k prizes, build to their platforms or simply show WebRTC solving a problem the users would be happy to use.

The thinking behind all this promotion is simple: if we can help you be more successful by using telecom capabilities it helps the whole ecosystem.’
‘The winners and runners up of this TADHack can also give their pitches at theGlobal WebRTC Summit later in the week (thanks to Informa). So you’ll have a chance (if you want) to promote yourself, your idea, and your business to the leaders of the WebRTC movement as well as network with them through the event.’
