#BuildforCOVID19 Global Online Hackathon

March 27, 2020 by GIPHY

We’ve joined Facebook and many other partners such as Microsoft, Pinterest, Slack, TikTok, Twitter, and WeChat to support and participate in the #BuildforCOVID19 Online Hackathon — a new global hackathon to tackle the challenges and problems related to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We want to encourage you – our global developer community – to join in as well and #BuildforCOVID19 using technologies of your choice across a range of suggested themes and challenge areas – some of which have been sourced through health partners including the World Health Organization (WHO). These areas include: health, vulnerable populations, businesses, community, education, and entertainment. 

The hackathon welcomes locally and globally focused solutions, and is open to all developers. Here’s how you can participate: 

  1. Register and view full guidelines on Devpost here.
  2. Join the #BuildforCOVID19 Slack chat here.
  3. Submit your project by Monday, March 30th at 9am PST.

Whether you use GIPHY’s API / SDK in your submissions or not, we’re here to support and help all developers. You can find us in the Slack chat (link above!).
