If you’re a provider of tools or you have a platform and are planning to provide hackathon support, we would like to brief you and collaborate on ways to increase your impact. We will take steps to:

  • Record a video interview with Fabien and/or Christine about your tools. Contact organizing team to schedule

We will need for you to provide good documentation/tutorials that people could use in the weeks ahead of hackathon weekend.

Please contact the organizing team for next steps.
