Create a Code:Buffalo team of 1 to 5 members, build an amazing app or product, and compete to win a top prize of $10,000. Teams will also be eligible to compete in multiple mini challenges with prizes throughout the week. Or join our elite team of mentors to help coders successfully submit their project.
Connect with other participants and get the latest details on Code:Buffalo Hackathon @ Home by joining the Slack Channel here! All team members will be required to join in order to participate.
There's no question that our community is facing some challenging times. To support local healthcare workers fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines, we will be donating a meal to WNY Feeds the Frontline for each person that signs up to participate in Code:Buffalo (up to 250 meals).
Not every participant is required to code, however, each team should have individuals capable of front-end and back-end development. Marketers, data analysts, business strategists and designers all make great team contributors.
Absolutely! Team sizes can range from 1 to 5. However, anyone who contributes on the project must be registered on your team.
No! But teams should be from or attend school in Western New York or the Rochester area.
The top prize for Code:Buffalo is $10,000, second place is $3,000 and third place is $1,500 for your team. There will also be mini challenges throughout the week of April 17-24 where you can win other prizes.
Please create a public repository on GitHub; you will need to submit the URL at the end of the contest.
Due to current events, you can start your work as soon as you register but you are certifying that the project you are submitting is original work that was built in the spirit of the event. If you have concerns about licensing, the spirit of the event, or any other specific question - please contact us and we’re happy to give you a decision
You will be judged based on the last commit to the master branch of your repository that was committed before the deadline of 11:59 PM (Midnight) on April 24th, 2020
