Facebook Online Hackathon 2020 for Global Developers (Up to $21,000 in cash prizes)

Deadline: June 24, 2020

Submissions are now open for Facebook Online Hackathon, focused on growing communities and driving social impact! They’re calling on global developers to #BuildwithFacebook across Messenger, Spark AR, and Wit.ai, for the chance to win up to $21,000 in cash prizes and Oculus VR headsets. In addition, they’ll be sending some free swags to every eligible participating team!

Facebook believes that when innovators come together with passion and purpose, amazing things can happen. Building on the momentum of the first hackathon in their series, they’re excited to welcome global developers to continue learning, building and growing in our next online challenge.

Leveraging the power of messaging, augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI), this time around, they invite you to create solutions that help build community and drive social impact.

Whether you bring to life an idea to connect friends and family using Messenger, an educational experience using Spark AR, or a natural language chatbot solution supporting businesses using Wit.ai, we’re excited to support you as you innovate for impact.
