The latest draft of the TADSummit agenda has just been released, with even more world-class presentations from developers, enterprises, telcos, and service providers stuffed in; and even more pre- and post-events being planned. TADSummit is the only place where the whole telecom app development ecosystem meets, its a broad global ecosystem that has lacked recognition, being trapped in a legacy view of telecoms. The big change, telecom is now programmable and democratized by the Internet. Telecom capabilities can be used by anyone, its driving the on-demand revolution, and is creating new businesses and services, as we’ll show throughout the TADSummit.
Day One kicks off early at 8AM with the Exhibition. Plus a chance to remotely network with people from around the world, using the online TADSummit Meeting Rooms provided by LyteSpark. We’ll have more on this feature in a separate weblog. And a chance to chat over coffee on hot-topics facing the industry.
Try to get in before 9AM (especially if you’re based in Lisbon), as the keynotes start at 9AM prompt, and reflect the diversity of businesses focused on telecom app development, SAPO / Portugal Telecom, LivePerson, RogerVoice, Truphone, and Telenor. The first plenary session is five ‘founder / CEO presentations’ from the people revolutionizing the telecoms industry: Jason Goecke, Tropo; Tony Jamous, Nexmo; Dinesh Saparamadu, hSenid Mobile; Ivelin Ivanov, Telestax; and Luis Quina, APidaze.
After lunch comes a very hard decision, which of the three packed streams to attend. Fortunately, they will all be recorded, so you’ll be able to view the one’s you missed after the event.
- Stream 1, Meet the TADHack Developers. A chance to see a few of the TADHack winners, get an update on the hacks and their commercialize, and practical insights into their experiences in telecom app development.
