Devpost is where you'll be submitting your projects!

To formalize your group, you will need to create a project on ​Devpost​ under the T9Hacks’ hackathon and include all your team members. If you are unfamiliar with devpost, follow these steps:


1. You and your team must create accounts on Devpost​. If you already have an account, make sure you're logged-in.

2. Go to the ​T9Hacks Hackathon​ page. "Register" for the hackathon.

3. One person in your team should ​create a project​. Fill out all the information about your project. Then, when prompted, click "Submit to a hackathon". Find the T9Hacks Spring 2018 hackathon page and submit to our hackathon. This is also where you submit your project for judging.

4. After you have successfully submitted your project, click “​+ add team members​” to add all members of your group to your project.

Submissions are due by 11am on Sunday!


One "hack" is to create your project with the minimum information and submit it. Then you can go back and edit the project some more. We just need your projects online, you can fill out information later.

Also, if you are attending the hackathon for a qualifying TAM class, you can email your dev post project link to your instructor, which counts towards your hackathon attendence!
