Two weeks to go—submit early!

There are two weeks left to create your innovative software!

Submissions are due August 2 before 5pm ET. Find out what time that is in your city.

If you haven't started a submission yet, please do so now. (We’ll walk you through our submission form process if you need help.)  And if you've just recently joined the hackathon, explore the quick-start guide and check out the competition resources.


Submission checklist

Run through this list before you sit back from your project:

  • Have you built functioning software that includes a software component?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video clearly demonstrate how your app works? Is it no more than five minutes long? (Check out these tips for making a great submission video.)
  • Does your software function as depicted in the submitted video and text description ?
  • Has your software been provided at no charge for the testing and judging periods?

Be sure to read through the official rules more than once. Or better yet, have a friend or colleague provide a second pair of eyes to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

Good luck!


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
