Quick-start guide

Thanks for joining TechCrunch Disrupt SF Hackathon! You're officially registered now, and we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the competition.

Here’s how to get started building your software. The submission period opens on June 5, 2018 and ends August 2, 2018, at 5pm ET.

  1. Get set up right. Decide what software you will be developing.  Remember to keep the submission requirements in mind and take a look at our sponsor APIs to get some ideas!  
  2. Get a head start on your submission. Fill out the basic fields on the application form and familiarize yourself with the submission requirements. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together. Remember: you can edit your submission as many times as you like before the deadline.
  3. Optional: Form a team. Thinking about collaborating with another developer or startup? Visit the participants page to find and meet teammates. You can see who else is looking for a teammate, check out what’s in their portfolio, and send them a message to connect.  Consider signing up for the competition Slack channel, too, where you can also meet and chat with other hackers.

We’re looking forward to seeing your software.  Good Luck!
