Calling Technical Mentors for the EOS Global Hackathon in San Francisco

It’s that time again. Following the huge success of Block.one’s EOS Global Hackathon events in Hong Kong, Sydney and London — where teams showcased their creative blockchain-based solutions and the top three from each hackathon walked away with cash prizes and the chance to compete in the Grand Finale, in Cape Town, for US$500,000 — our next stop is San Francisco. One more #EOSHackathon on the road to South Africa — and we really want to hear from you!

Have you been following the development and launch of EOSIO? Do you already have a blockchain-based application running on the platform? Do the words “cleos,” “nodeos” and “keosd” mean anything to you?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above and love contributing to the EOSIO community, we’d like to invite you to apply to be a volunteer Technical Mentor at the event in San Francisco, November 10–11. Applicants who are accepted will have their hotel and airfares covered to and from San Francisco from their location.

To apply, please fill out the Mentor Application Form on the EOS Hackathon website.

In addition to being a vital part of the hackathon, you’ll get to share your knowledge of the platform and help those who are building amazing, innovative projects on EOSIO. Being a mentor can be hugely rewarding — check out what other mentors had to say about the hackathons in Hong Kong and Sydney:

Again, if the prospect of mentoring excites you, please fill out the Mentor Application Form on the EOS Hackathon website. If you have the right credentials, we’ll get back to you with additional information and details!

As part of the Mentors team, you’ll be:

  • Helping new EOSIO developers who may find themselves getting stuck as they get started.
  • Helping mid-level EOSIO developers who know the ropes but may not understand the best tools, easiest shortcuts, or the right solution for a hack build.
  • Solving general tech troubleshooting questions. We’re not saying you’re going to be asked to help connect to the WiFi… but you might be!
  • Eating great food, meeting other experienced EOSIO community developers, and having fun 🙂

We look forward to hearing from you!
