Into the wild! This weekend we would love to see you build awesome hacks for animals. Whether it's the 3D tour of the Amazon rainforest or an e-commerce application for your pet merch. It's time to bring your wild hacky ideas to life for this jungle-themed hackathon.
We'll mark this celebration with hacking, workshops, mini-events, live streams, and more! While we'd love to have you build something on the theme, our themes are only here for inspiration. As always, build whatever you'd like!
- We require all teams to submit a 2 minute or less demo video.
- Your video must be created the weekend of the hackathon.
- Your code must be available in some sort of public repository.
- We do allow you to submit your project to other hackathons (this weekend only) as long as the other hackathon also allows this.
- If you're continuing work on an old project, you MUST specify in your Devpost what was worked on 1) before the hackathon and 2) during the hackathon.
