Calling Technical Mentors for the EOS Global Hackathon in Sydney

It’s that time again. Following the huge success of the inaugural EOS Global Hackathon event, in Hong Kong — where 90 teams showcased their work and the top three walked off with cash prizes and the chance to compete in the grand finale for US$500,000 — our next stop is Sydney. #EOSHackathon is just getting started, and we want to hear from you!

Have you been following the development and launch of EOSIO? Do you already have a DAPP running on the platform? Do the words “cleos,” “nodeos” and “keosd” mean anything to you?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions and love contributing to the EOSIO community, we’d like to invite you to apply to be a volunteer Technical Mentor at the event in Sydney, August 4–5. Applicants who are accepted will have hotel and airfares covered to and from Sydney from their location.

To apply, please fill out the Mentor Application Form.

In addition to being a vital part of the hackathon, you’ll get to share your knowledge of the platform and help those who are building amazing and innovative projects on EOSIO. Being a mentor can be hugely rewarding. Check out what other mentors had to say about the hackathon in Hong Kong:

Again, if the prospect of mentoring excites you, please fill out the Mentor Application Form. We will be needing mentors for all future hackathons, so feel free to apply even if the dates for Sydney do not work for you. If you have the right credentials, we’ll get back to you with additional information and details!

As part of the Mentors team, you’ll be:

  • Helping new EOSIO DAPP developers who may find themselves getting stuck as they get started.
  • Helping mid-level EOSIO DAPP developers who know the ropes, but may not understand the best tools, easiest shortcuts, or the right solution for a hack build.
  • Solving general tech troubleshooting questions. We’re not saying you’re going to be asked to help connect to the wifi… but you might be!
  • Eating great food, meeting other experienced EOSIO community developers, and having fun 🙂

We look forward to hearing from you!
