This session presents the results of the TADHack mini-Orlando Hackathon, which takes place the weekend before Enterprise Connect. TADHack brings together a rich diversity of people, across the EC audience and the Orlando community--anyone from students to IT professionals, from computer programmers to product management and marketing folks. For 2020 the hackathon has added a theme/focus on intelligent agents/assistants (also known as bots) using conversational interfaces.

Hackathon participants collaborate on a project over just one weekend using APIs and other resources from several of the companies involved in Enterprise Connect to solve problems that matter to them across their work, community or family life. In this session, you'll see, first-hand, how the top hackathon participants addressed problems that can be solved through mashing up enterprise capabilities and programmable communications. You may even leave the session inspired to kick off a programmable communications projects of your own when you get back to the office.

Takeaways:

* Learn how intelligent agent/bot technology can be quickly programmed to integrate with an enhance communications and other systems.
* See examples of intelligent agent/bot applications that can be created quickly to solve specific business challenges.
* Bring back specific lessons and ideas to share with your enterprise’s own developers
