TADSummit Agenda

AgendaThe TADSummit agenda is now available, you will see it is quite a special event. We continue to add content and will likely be adding content right up to the the event. So expect the agenda to become even more over-stuffed. There are over 6 events running in conjunction with TADSummit, because it has become the destination for anyone involved in telecom app development, that is building new services or embedding capabilities with:

  • Telecom APIs (including scripts and forms/templates)
  • WebRTC and open source telecom/web software
  • Enterprise comms and on-demand services
  • Identity and federation
  • Media servers
  • Legacy services and IMS
  • Messaging, location, payments, and more.

The keynote line-up is amazing with leaders from SAPO / Portugal Telecom,  LivePerson, RogerVoice, MTN, Truphone, Telenor and several yet to be announced.

The morning plenary is a run of 5 founder / CEO presentations from the people revolutionizing our industry: Jason Goecke, Tropo; Tony Jamous, Nexmo; Dinesh Saparamadu, hSenid Mobile; Ivelin Ivanov, Telestax; and Luis Quina, APidaze. Many are joint with customers to show their vision has been made real.
