Utopian Hackathon - Revealing Date, Topic, Prizes & More Details on The First Utopian.io Community Hackathon

in #fundition-ffdnxgdga6 years ago (edited)

The main event of the Utopian.io team and community meetup is happening on September 20th and you are invited! Join us for twenty-four hours of designing and developing inspiring open source applications to benefit the users of Utopian.io and the Steem blockchain.

In addition to providing an opportunity to collaborate with some of the best tech minds of the Steem and Utopian.io community, we’ve secured a budget for prizes to make it especially tempting for you to take part and contribute.


The time-frame we’ve chosen is a short one. The hackathon will launch on September 20th 6:00 am UTC and will end on September 21st 6:00 am UTC.

We don’t expect to sleep much, but we will get a lot done!


Anywhere and everywhere!

The hackathon headquarters will, of course, be at the villa the Utopian.io team will be staying at in Lucca, between Pisa and Florence.

Community members who are able to attend in person are welcome to join us at the villa from 6:00 am until 4:00 pm UTC. For anyone joining via the Internet, and attendees looking to continue their projects from home, the hackathon will continue until 6:00 am on September 21st.

How To Join?

RSVP here to save your spot, and be sure to indicate if you plan to attend in person or online.

If you’ll be joining us from the comfort of your own home or office, wherever that may be, please be sure to join the #hackathon channel on the Utopian.io Discord channel to discuss and coordinate. The hackathon will also be streamed live on DLive and Twitch, with personal commentary and the kind of fun moments that only happen on live streams.

By September 19th, be sure to form your hackathon team, or join one on the #hackathon channel by chatting with other attending community members. Each group should ideally have at least one developer and one designer.

To be included in the contributions evaluated for a prize, your work should be submitted as a Utopian.io contribution no later than 21 Sept. 10:00 am UTC.

What Will We Do?

The topics chosen for our first community hackathon are Open Source and Steem. While fairly broad, these topics cover what Utopian.io is about - empowering open source developers and contributors by utilizing the Steem blockchain.

As we get ready for the hackathon on our side, we encourage you to start a discussion regarding specific angles and technological solutions you would want to focus on. The best place to do so is the dedicated #hackathon channel in the Utopian.io community Discord. We look forward to seeing your early ideas there!

Prizes & Extras

To give you another good reason to join and excel, we’re offering a cash prize in addition to an upvote on your contribution post to Utopian.io.

First Place: 100% upvote + 300 STEEM
Second Place: 80% + 150 STEEM
Third Place: Upvote based on moderation score + 50 STEEM

The Utopian.io moderation teams will evaluate and score the contributions, and winners will be chosen based on the highest score awarded across teams. Winners will be announced by September 26th.

Bring Your Friends!

The hackathon is open to one and all, both at the villa or online, from anywhere in the world. To ensure maximum visibility for the event, we plan to advertise it with the local developer community in Italy, as well as to blockchain development enthusiasts worldwide.

We encourage you to send this announcement to anyone you think may be interested in participating. For any questions, please contact us on the #hackathon channel on the Utopian.io Discord server.

Can’t wait to hack away with you!


@steemstem very nice it sound good .. it valuable

OMG what is this ????

I can see 571
It is a type of ishihara chart used to detect person with colour blindness..
If you can't see any no. You may be colorblind for red colour or something related.

Well, not really. ishihara's chart use colors that are similar or color pairs that exploit some characteristics of sensory cells in our eyes to cause errors, and this image is totally unlike that - the digits here are filled with the same color as background and the shape of a digit is formed only with a thin line of dots in a darker color (which also is common in the background). If the lines weren't so thin, we'd probably have no problems seeing these digits and this is exactly not like ishihara's tests where the colored areas are intentionally large enough to ensure one fails to see them due to colorblindness and not just due to need for some minor +/- glasses ;)

Okk @ookamisuuhaisha I think I'm wrong as you explained each detail...
Thanks for correcting me.

@jeremiah06 - I may be wrong, but that's pretty much spamming.. Your post is probably interesting, but totally unrelated to utopian hackaton article.. If you'd at least propose something like an app to generate such images.. but not.

I can see 571 on it.

A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including subject-matter-experts, collaborate intensively on software projects. - Wikipedia

Oh. Thanks so Much!

Yes, it is very good
