Information about the hackathon coding challenge can be found here, on Troopl

Our challenge reflects the hackathon’s mission to foster inclusion and support for developers of all skill levels. We look forward to seeing your hackathon projects making the tech community a more welcoming place!

What is Troopl?
Troopl is a portfolio builder that allows developers to showcase their work and be discovered by companies. By adding your hackathon project (and other projects!) to a Troopl portfolio, you will have a visible presence searchable and filterable to your specific skillset. Companies from all around the world can check you out. And your work can inspire other like-minded developers on the platform.

Code templates

Submission guidelines

When to submit: 4PM CET Sunday (1 hour before finals)
How to submit:
  1. Add your code to an open-source code repository (i.e. GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket) and push your final project to production (if relevant).
  2. Sign in / sign up to Troopl at troopl.com 🤩
  3. Visit the SheSharp Hackathon Challenge page and, **below the instructions, click Add project 🚀
  4. Complete the fields to add your project, including links to your code repository & production URL. You’ll notice SheSharp Hackathon is already selected from the Challenge submission dropdown 🎉
  5. Once created, your project will be added to your Troopl portfolio and on the SheSharp Hackathon page for judges and participants to see 👀
  6. Finally, share your project’s Troopl link in the Slack #hackathon channel 📮

Eligible submissions must:

  • Be available in an open source code repository (GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab)
  • Be submitted on Troopl and correctly associated with the hackathon challenge
  • Be posted in #hackathon before the 4PM Sunday deadline
  • Not require judges to run code locally to interact with your project. (You can share your project either via link to live-deployed code, or via recorded video walkthrough.)

We encourage:

  • Live link to deployed code, where applicable (shared via Troopl in “Production url”)
  • Video demo/walkthrough of submission (shared via Troopl in “Production url” or “About”)
    • Videos should be fewer than 5 minutes long

Project submissions as individuals or teams

  • Hackathon participants can work on their project alone or as part of a team.
  • There is no maximum limit for the number of people in one team. If a team is selected for a prize, the prize will be divided among each team members.
    Example: if the 1 year subscription to Frontend Masters is awarded to a 1-person team, that person get the full prize; if the 1-year subscription to Frontend Masters is awarded to a team composed by 2 people, they get a subscription of 6 months each.
  • All members of a team should submit the project on Troopl to receive the prize, and make sure to complete the Troopl submission by filling the team’s code repository.
