Twilio Hackathon Deadline Is Two Weeks Away

We're now two weeks away from the April 30 deadline, so we wanted to post a quick reminder and a round up some of the early submissions.

Need ideas? Check out the ideas thread.

Have questions? There's also a dedicated help thread - the Twilio team has been amazing at offering their support.

A few submissions so far—

Just to be clear, we will not favor early entries, but with this kind of thing it's always best not to wait until the last minute.

Gwyneth finds an opportunity to bring some positivity into the pandemic:

Austin is sheltering in place and needed inspiration for new recipes, so they built a recipe finder:

Robert leveraged Twilio Sync to build a collaborative drawing app:

We’re excited to see more submissions across all four categories!

  • COVID-19 Communications
  • Engaging Engagements
  • Interesting Integrations
  • Exciting X-Factors

Remember, there will be a Grand Prize winner in each category, so you might want to choose a less-popular category to increase your chances of taking home the top prize!

Happy Coding!

Hi Ben! Is it okay to ask about the grand prize "$1,500 USD gift card or equivalent "?

What kind of gift card is that? Where can the winner use it? Thank you.
