WE WANT YOU!
Unable to participate in an in-person Space Apps event? You can still hack virtually from just about anywhere on planet Earth! Come join us for the Space Apps 2017 Virtual Event, and be part of an awesome community working together to address major challenges on Earth.
1. Sign on to spaceappchallenge.org at 9:00am UTC on April 29th when the Virtual Event officially begins.
2. Find a team
3. Select a challenge and register your team.
4. Submit a project page including a 30-second video (guide) by April 30th at 11:59pm UTC. All Virtual Event teams will submit a video as part of their submission so the judges can see your team's pitch.
5. Judges will review Virtual project submissions after Space Apps and announce the global judging nominees in the weeks after Space Apps.
Hack with a pre-formed team or show up on spaceappschallenge.org at the start of the hackathon to find a team. This year we will feature a chat platform on our website that participants can use for team formation. You will automatically be added to three chat channels: (1) virtual (for general discussion) (2) virtual-project-ideas (for sharing ideas) (3) virtual-teaming (for finding a team). You can also chat with others working on the same challenges that you are working on by joining the challenge-specific channels.
Have an idea? Use the chat platform to post a brief summary of your project idea or why you're interested in a particular challenge. Include information about the skills your team has and the skills your team needs, and remember that a well-rounded team includes participants from both technical and non-technical backgrounds.
Need a team? If you're looking for a team, don't be shy! You can contribute! Introduce yourself to the group and share your project interests and skills in the chat. Cycle through the project ideas that have been shared and follow up with the participant or team whose idea inspires you.
Create a team page as soon as your team is formed via the challenge page of the challenge that inspired your project. The team page is a new feature we're introducing this year to give teams the opportunity to share their team's journey throughout the weekend.
Please reference the Team Registration and Project Submission Guide for further information.
