Ergo Hackathons have become a principal and defining feature of the community over the last year. In just a short amount of time, ErgoHacks have helped build tools and dApps that are now key pieces of infrastructure in the Ergo ecosystem. Though these events started out as competitions, one of the greatest outcomes has been the retention and expansion of community developers actively working to build DeFi on Ergo.
For the next ErgoHack, we are pleased to announce that the Ergo Foundation and ErgoPad (Ergo’s IDO launchpad) are partnering to present this event over a three week period. The schedule for this hackathon will have the first week focus on ideas and proposals, followed by a two week window where participants will develop, make improvements and build prototypes. As has been in the past, the competition will welcome solo and team participants (of up to 6 people in the group) to the Ergo Discord Server. There, participants can chat with mentors and find other possible teammates (if they are looking for additional members).
Hackathon participants will be free to pursue and build projects that span a variety of DeFi use cases. However, this time the event will not only focus on new projects, but also encourage proposals to improve pre-existing ecosystem projects. As a result, we invite entries from developers, entrepreneurs and professionals from other fields who have ideas that they would like to pursue. If you are new to Ergo and Ergoscript, we are pleased to announce that DeCo (formerly ErgoLearn) will be active partners in providing educational materials from their online courses.
