Collaboration, Live Streams, Office Hours + More To Help You Build

There are three weeks remaining in the AWS Hackathon for Good. Submissions are due August 31 before 5pm EDT. (Find out what time that is in your city)

Whether or not you have started building your AWS Hackathon for Good project, the Slack Channel is the perfect place to connect with other developers!

Not only can you bounce ideas off each other and ask other developers for technical help, but you can also use the Slack Channel to ask the AWS and Devpost teams questions!

Teaming up

Looking for a challenge team?  The Slack Channel can also help you connect with potential teammates.  You can also use the challenge Participants Tab to search for other developers looking to team up, check out their skills and message them to see if they want to collaborate


Figuring out where to start with your project can sometimes be a hurdle in your building journey.  The Resources Tab can be a great place to find your footing and take advantage of the documents and other helpful tips.  

Already working on your application, but could use a little help? In addition to asking questions in the Slack Channel or Discussion forum, these resources, including live streams and office hours, are there to assist and may bring you one step closer to a winning project.
