Submitting your Project to Devpost

  • Please create and submit your team name and members as soon as possible on Devpost (ideally tonight). Final deadline for submission edits is 10:00 AM - SUBMIT YOUR HACK BY 9:45 AM TO BE SAFE.
  • All team members must be registered in Devpost
  • Your final project submission must include:
    • A concise description
    • A link to all your source code on a public Github repo
    • List all Sponsor APIs/Protocols your project integrated with

#BUIDL Fair & Judging

  • All hackers must vacate the tables in the main stage area at 9:00am
  • Your team will be assigned a table number viewable at ethsanfrancisco.com/judging
  • Set up at your assigned table between 9:30am-10:00am. Your team must be fully set-up by 10:00am.
  • Please write your project name and a short description of your project on your table card
  • Judges will visit each of the tables starting with 1 and continuing until reaching the end of each row. Please ensure your full team is present at your table when the judges reach your table.
  • Before/After judging, your team is invited to walk around and meet other teams, learning about their projects.
  • When the judges arrive at your table, please greet them briefly (<1 min) and shortly after, a timekeeper accompanying the judges will start a timer on a device facing you to help you pace your presentation. When the alarm rings, no additional conversation regarding your project can take place. This alarm is a hard stop for the sake of fairness.
  • You will have a total of 7 minutes with the judges. This is very strict and rewards teams who are able to efficiently communicate and demonstrate their project. We suggest allocating approximately 5 minutes to your presentation and 2 minutes to judge questions.
  • The top 10 projects will be notified between 1-1:30pm and will be invited to present their project on the main stage during the closing ceremony, starting at 1:30pm.

After Party

  • Following the Closing Ceremony, we cordially invite you to join us for the ETH San Francisco After Party at The Lot hosted by MAKER
  • Come celebrate with all ETHSanFrancisco attendees and enjoy complimentary drinks!
