IIT Real-Time Communications Faculty, Staff and Students Help Make TADHack 2015 a Success

Illinois Institute of Technology Real-Time Communications Lab recently hosted TADHack at the Idea Shop on IIT’s Main Campus on June 13 and June 14. TADHack in 2015 was roughly double the size of last year, with close to 1,400 registrations, more than 800 attendees and over 90 hacks. It was an intense experience for everyone involved.

Carol Davids, director, Real-Time Communications Lab and industry professor of Information Technology and Management, coordinated the Chicago TADHack at Illinois Institute of Technology. She was assisted by IIT students, staff and volunteers.

Alan Johnston, assistant professor of Information Technology and Management, entered a WebRTC Security project along with his team. His team was not pitching for a prize, rather using TADHack as a platform to promote an important security issue on ‘man in the middle attacks’ with WebRTC.
