Sovereign Data Hackathon

By Ceramic Network

October 7 - October 21, 2021

πŸ‘‰ Join us in the Ceramic Discord and engage
with other participants in the "Hackathon" channel
& get help from sponsors in the "Dev Help" channel! πŸ‘ˆ

Build powerful, secure and flexible decentralized applications with Ceramic Network - scalable infrastructure for managing data and identities in web3. Ceramic is a dynamic data streaming protocol built on IPFS. For the first time, developers can now create and deploy data streams to a peer-to-peer network of production-ready Ceramic nodes.

The 2-week hackathon will offer support and prizes to developers building with the core data network (Ceramic), our cross-platform identity protocol (DID Data Store/Data Models), or creating critical tooling for the Ceramic ecosystem. In addition to the core bounties, there will also be workshops and other prizes from our partners contributing to Web3's identity and data stack.

Learn more about our powerful new tools for building applications on Ceramic here: https://blog.ceramic.network/the-next-architecture-for-building-web3-data-applications/

For support, join our Ceramic Discord to connect with our team and ask questions. We suggest starting with the "Dev Help" channel, and if you can't find an answer to your question, posting it directly in the "Hackathon" channel. Our sponsors will also be active in the "Hackathon channel," so you can post any questions related to co-sponsored bounties there as well

Workshop Schedule:

October 07: Hackathon Kickoff- Introducing Ceramic's Sovereign Data Hackathon, an overview of the bounties totaling over $10,000 in prizes, and sharing a bit about our sponsors and events to come over the next two weeks. Add to Calendar

October 07: How Ceramic is enabling collaboration on the Sovereign Web- So far most pure dApps have had a backend on Ethereum and a frontend hosted on IPFS. This is quickly changing as new primitives for mutable content are being introduced. We explore how future dapps can be designed to be much more dynamic and provide a better UX using these primitives. Add to Calendar
