Hackathon

As one of our objectives in the Web3 Foundation is pushing the Web3 technology stack, we would like to support any individual or team who wants to organize a hackathon that gets more developers to understand Polkadot/Substrate in your city.

We are not only providing technical resources for you, but we can have someone from our team give a hands-on workshop/presentation about the technology to help participants get started hacking on it more quickly.

Ideas

Why you should host a hackathon?

  • Learn the bleeding-edge technology
  • Believe the Web3 technology stack is suitable for developers to build their applications
  • Like to make connections

How do hackathons differ from workshops?

Hackathon is aimed at participants who want to deliver their prototype and demonstrate their ideas to reality in a short period (few hours - one day). Workshops are more for getting developers familiar with the tooling and understanding more about what are the resources currently available and how they can make use of it.
