About the Hackathon
Applications are open for the Facebook Messaging Hackathon 2020. Building lasting relationships through conversation – that’s how messaging experiences like Messenger enable connections to thrive amongst billions of people.
Solutions like chatbots have come a long way, and now you can take them even further. Whether you’re just getting started or an experienced pro, we invite you to build and submit Messenger experiences that leverage at least one of the following features: Handover Protocol, One-Time Notifications, Private Replies, and Quick Replies.
Not only is this a chance to put your skills to the test and learn something new, but you’ll also connect with a global community of like-minded developers, benefit from educational resources and be in the running to win some awesome cash prizes.
