How can you participate in the Space Apps Virtual Event?
You don't have to be at a local event to participate in Space Apps… you just need a computer, an Internet connection and a desire to collaborate with others to build applications. This intense 48 hour weekend is for developers, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs – anyone who is a space and science enthusiast. You will connect online with global dispatch to find a team that needs your specific skills and expertise to help solve a challenge. All from the comfort of your own home.
Now, when we say 48 hours, that is the time that we expect you to commit in your own time zone. Of course, it's more complicated than that globally, and since you are participating virtually, here's some cool information:
What can you do?
- Create your own team and form a global team to solve a challenge!
- Find a challenge you want to work on and locate a team that needs your skills (that team may even be at your wait listed location)!
- Find a challenge you want to solve yourself and do it!
- Find a challenge that you and your friends or co-workers are excited about and solve it!
- Some other means of working that I haven't thought of!
What to do
- Become a ViP (a Virtual Participant). Register by clicking that green button on the top right hand side of this page, just over the header image.
- Review the challenges. The sooner you figure out what you want to do, the more time you have to meet awesome people and make awesome projects.
- Want to start a new team? 1) Make it official by creating a Project. 2) add your info into the Matchmaking! section on the Hackpad of your chosen Challenge page. 3) Build your team - invite friends, tweet about it, check the Matchmaking! section for people that want to work with you.
- Want to find a team to join? 1) Add your information into the Matchmaking! section of the Hackpad of your chosen Challenge page. 2) Search the Matchmaking!! section for teams that are looking for you.
- Team communication. Each team will create its own means of communication (if you're starting a team, you'll want to figure this out). We've found that this works a lot better than trying to force everyone to do it the same way.
Instant text sharing with up to 150 people (with code highlighting): http://spaceapps.hackpad.org/
If you need anything, I will be adding to the FAQ below as the questions roll in - check there first. If that fails:
- You can comment at the bottom of this page
- tweet us @spaceapps
- Add "spaceapps" on Skype
- Join the #spaceapps chat channel on IRC. Aren't familiar with IRC? Head to webchat.freenode.net and type in your nickname and #spaceapps as the channel you want to join.
- Email us at [email protected]!
Do I HAVE to work with a team?
Of course not - this all about empowering you to work at your best. If you want to work alone or with your pre-established team, do it! We're just trying to make it super easy to connect with other people because you never know what will happen.
