Announcing the Flow FLIP Fest

Flow-Hack_social

The first ever Flow FLIP Fest is here; a buildathon for developers to collaborate on an open source blockchain project. A FLIP is a Flow Improvement Proposal; a community-driven initiative to discuss and execute impactful improvements on Flow.

The Flow FLIP Fest is a two-month event that will engage and reward participants for creating innovative and effective improvements to Flow. The goal of FLIP Fest is to empower developers to build solutions on Flow that will have a lasting impact on the developer community and broader consumer audience by extension. There are many areas to contribute, including: Non-custodial wallets, SDKs, learning tools, and more critical areas where participants will propose their solutions to specified needs. This also includes feature requests from businesses already developing on Flow.

FLIP Fest registration opens on Sept. 15, 2021, and has been extended to Oct. 22, with FLIP Fest ending on Oct. 30.

FLIP Fest will be focused on the following themes: Wallets, SDKs, Local Development Tools, Non-Custodial Wallet Providers, and Learning Tools.

HackerEarth will host FLIP Fest, so head over there to register today and learn more about what participants can expect. There is no cost to register to participate, so if you’re ready to sign your team up to take on your next challenge, there’s no barrier for entry.
