Do you like developing awesome tools to make Twitch better for everyone? Wait, let us rephrase…
Do you like developing awesome tools to make Twitch better for everyone while a big clock ticks down to 0:00 like you’re in an action movie? If you’re up for a fun and rewarding challenge, you should join us Saturday, October 27 for our 24-hour TwitchCon Hackathon.
Here’s how it works: Partnered streamers will approach us with ideas for new and useful extensions. Our expert staff will vet their ideas, and then teams of up to four hackers (that’s you!) will race to create prototypes of those extensions by the end of the Hackathon.
The TwitchCon Hackathon will begin Saturday morning, with the list of hackable extension concepts being revealed. Each team will pick one streamer’s project to work on from the list. After the opening session, hacking begins! Food will be provided; sleep will be optional. 24 hours later we’ll demo the projects. Entries will be judged based on functionality, design, and other criteria, and prizes will be awarded for top extensions. Winners will receive trophies, blog recognition, and a featured extension slot.
Did we mention every accepted hacker gets a complimentary 3-day pass to TwitchCon? Let's get started.
