Start your DevDays Asia 2016 @ Beijing Hackathon project today!

DevDays Asia 2016 @ Beijing Hackathon

The DevDays Asia 2016 @ Beijing hackathon is open today!

With 1.2 billion users, Microsoft Office is the world’s most popular set of productivity tools. The Microsoft Office 365 team is challenging developers to boost productivity by creating a project within Microsoft Office at the DevDays Asia 2016 @ Beijing hackathon.

Microsoft’s new company mission is: to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. It may seem like a big job, but Microsoft Graph and Add-in tools make hacking productivity possible in a whole new way.

We invite you to submit a hackathon project that increases productivity in any aspect of your life – from your finances, to your social media, your travel plans, or your work schedule. The possibilities for productivity improvements are endless! Plus, we have some pretty cool prizes for the hackathon winners.

How to Enter:

1) First, register online with DevDays Asia 2016 @ Beijing as an individual contestant. Select “Yes” when asked if you will participate in the hackathon. See full requirements under the Hackathon tab.

2) Sign up for your free Microsoft Developer Account.

3) Visit the Resources tab for links to Microsoft Graph and Add-in documentation, tutorials, and app ideas. You may also register your hackathon project with a team or register your idea and form a team at the event.
