We are happy to announce our first API3 Workathon, a Community Initiative that encourages community members to team up and participate in a series of challenges. Teamwork brings the community closer together and allows participants to gain insight into what it is like working remotely with people from all over the world to build something of value. The content that arises from these team efforts, with community members contributing complimentary skills, will yield greater results in a shorter amount of time. Furthermore, complementing each other as a team removes a barrier for people who might have great ideas but are unable to execute them on their own due to a lack of skills or resources.
The API3 Workathon starts with the Opening Weeks. During these weeks, community members participate solo to qualify for the following team-based contests and to show what they’re capable of, to gain attention from other contestants for possible collaboration. The challenges of the Opening Weeks require both creativity and a broad knowledge of API3 as they close with the API3 Riddles contest - a quiz that requires participants to be up-to-date about the development state of the API3 project.
After the Opening Weeks, contestants will team up for the upcoming challenges. Only teams of two will be able to participate. To make it easier for the community to build teams, we have set up a dedicated channel on Discord (#teams). Changing teams during the API3 Workathon is not allowed, so choose team members carefully. Each contest will be announced individually to ensure that participants focus on one task at a time. Depending on the subject, the contests will be held on either Discord or in this forum topic.
The contest will run dynamically with no fixed closing date.
