TadHack Fuenlabrada satellite event summary.

Solaiemes has partnered with Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (a public university in Madrid) to setup a Telco API workshop for Telecommunications and Computer Science students, as academic extracurricular activity, in the context of TADHack 2014.

The event aimed to give a glimpse into the fascinating world of APIs in general, and Telco APIs in particular, and setup very simple examples using some of the resources available as part of TADHack 2014.
The seminar was very brief, 6 hours in 2 days, it is hard to cover such a broad field, but we indeed tried. A step by step explanation of a RCS-base simple messaging service and deploying a WebRTC dialer application in just a few minutes was part of the seminar. We hope the students got a firm grasp of the importance of telco-related services and APIs, both as a very dynamic technology arena and a potential professional focus for their upcoming entrepreneurial projects or job seeking plans.

Thanks to Pedro de las Heras (@pheras) from the URJC TIC department to help setting this up and to Alan Quayle for their encouraging opening remarks to the event.

TadHack WebRTC exposure for Nexmo VoIP lines

As you know Solaiemes is sponsoring TadHack event and providing the RCS API portal to allow developers to get familiar with rich chat possibilities to create valuable interactive services.

As Nexmo is offering its VoIP lines for the hackaton we just prepared a "beta" way to use their lines with WebRTC. In this site the developer can introduce the credentials of the Nexmo lines and get the credentials to use that line with the WebRTC SDK. No need additional registration, if you registered in the Nexmo portal you only need to get your WebRTC SDK credentials linked to your line.

There are included a couple of examples including the code source that can be downloaded, a dialer and a clic2call.

We will keep it live for the Hackaton.

Enjoy the hack!

join TADHACK and use our RCS API to create compelling cases based on rich messaging.

Solaiemes is sponsoring TADHACK 2014 - Telecom Application Developer Hackaton (organized by Alan Quayle) to be held in Madrid next June 6-7, and providing the RCS network API to engage telco developers in starting to use rich messaging to create compelling cases, application to person (A2P/B2C) and also why not person to thing (M2P). Also developers can create use cases combining several telco APIs offered for the Hackaton including voice, sms, and related features by Telestax, Nexmo, Tropo and hSenid.

The TADHACK hackaton is offering several prizes ($) and it is open to remote entries not only onsite participants.

You may register at our  RCS API Portal Sandbox ( powered by 3scale API management and including a testbed to test your cases. For this event we offered the simplest REST API for RCS, including features as chat, file transfer, location and real time notifications (delivered, displayed). The portal included all the API documentation and examples. Also a simple "echo service" can be used as base to start with, find it here in Github.
