We've got the answers for your questions
We will help pair you up every week leading up to the event. More details in our Slack.
Live design and coding workshops begins August 3rd at 5pm PST. These workshops allow you to see how pros work in real time, and you can learn from their successes and failures. The hackathon also provides an opportunity to meet others and discuss the latest trends in Tech. If you're looking to improve your skills and network with others, our hackathon is the perfect place to start.
We hold our hackathons over Framevr.io for a fully immersive experience on the metaverse. There's nothing to download and the platform works best on Google Chrome. There will be private audio zones and you will be able to share your screen as well.
Framevr is an immersive 3D space where you can work together with other developers in the same room to create rich experiences, or just hang out and chat.
What's the time commitment? Put out as much as you can to help your team.
When you join us for this event, you'll be able to meet veterans from all over the place. Each one of us brings a unique perspective to the table and you'll be able to collab with one another during our networking breakout sessions.
We know that finding opportunities in tech can be hard, so it's important that we take advantage of every chance we get to connect with other pros who are going through the same thing. We're looking forward to seeing you there!
