It’s been a busy start to the year with TADHack Phoenix in February and TADHack Orlando Online in March. In those events it’s been impressive to see how programmable telecoms / communications (CXTech) is becoming mainstream with developers; and how rich the CXTech stack has become, for example including bot frameworks. All of the hacks in Phoenix, and over half in Orlando included intelligent assistants (bots).
Coming up through the month of May is TADSummit Asia (Online). We’ve just released the TADSummit Asia agenda (draft, lots more to add); where you can see all the new, innovative and original content. All content is the latest thinking, experiences and results focused on programmable communications / telecoms (CXTech).
Thanks to Sangoma, Asterisk, VoIP Innovations (Apidaze), and TeleSign for sponsoring TADSummit Asia. We’ll be featuring the TeleSign TeleTalks through the year in the TADSummit agenda.
Online has been part of TADHack and TADSummit since their founding in 2014 and 2013 respectively. It’s challenging to get the best people together in one place, so we’ve always enabled those who can not make it in person to take part remotely.
Last year we discovered with TADSummit Asia 2019 the interest in programmable communications / CXTech across Asia is not significant enough to support one physical location. So we made the event online, which turned out quite well. So the plan for TADSummit Asia 2020 was always online, this is not a reaction to COVID-19.
Our plan for TADSummit Asia is to release daily through the the month of May presentations and panel sessions from the agenda. These are all original content with the latest thinking, experiences and results focused on programmable communications / telecoms (CXTech). I’ll be adding the presentations as embeds to the agenda (I will have it in accordion format soon), as well as writing additional commentary and analysis on the TADSummit Blog.
Towards the end of May, we’ll run a few live panel sessions based on which content generated the most discussion. To reflect the interest of everyone following TADSummit Asia.
Have a read though the TADSummit Asia agenda, it’s frank and to the point. We have a no-BS policy. If you want to take part please contact me. We’re not running any sign-up or log-in; the content is freely accessible, and the contact info for everyone who takes part will be on their content. Making it easy to get in contact with people whose ideas and experiences are of interest for you.
This approach we think is the best way to run an online event:
- Regular, original content with the latest thinking, experiences and results focused on programmable communications / telecoms (CXTech);
- Open access, so you do not get yet more spam and it lets the quality of content generate the interest; and
- Followed up at the end of the event with some live discussions on the hot topics people viewing the content decide.
