CreatorCon 2020 Virtual Hackathon Streaming

Doing a virtual hackathon means that more people across the world can participate, which we’re really excited about. The downside is that we’re not all in a room together. While teams will be collaborating internally with each other and we have the hackathon community forum, we wanted to do something else to create some community and camaraderie.

We’re excited to announce that in addition to the special Hackathon version of Live Coding Happy Hour on Friday, May 1 at 4 PM EDT, we’re going to be doing two more Livestream Hackathon Shows over the weekend streaming live on YouTube and Twitch. On these shows, we’ll be interviewing teams about the apps they’re building and talking to gurus about what they’ve seen so far. We may even do some hacking ourselves! We currently have the following two shows scheduled but subscribe to our YouTube and/or Twitch channels so you get notified just in case we do some extra streaming:

Saturday, May 2 at 1-3 PM EDT: Saturday Show Link [Starts at: 5 PM GMT | 10:30 PM IST | 3 AM AEST] Sunday, May 3 at 9-11 AM EDT: Sunday Show Link [Starts at: 1 PM GMT | 6:30 PM IST | 11 PM AEST]

Teams are also encouraged to do their own streaming. If you’re planning on streaming your hack, let us know and we’ll link to it on this post and stop by while you are streaming.
