Build with the Colony Stack
Extensions and Integrations
Projects that connect external tools, data, and platforms we use everyday to Colony-ready dApps.
The user-facing applications that enable people to interact with the Colony Network, built by developers from all around to suit the needs of their organization.
The bridge between the user facing and the infrastructure-facing layers of Colony. The colonyJS library allows developers to leverage the power of Colony’s smart contracts in their own applications.
A set of smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain, the Colony Network handles incentivization, division of labour, decision making, and dispute resolution to make decentralized organizations work.
How it Works
Join Gitter to find teammates, discuss ideas, and ask questions.
Open a GitHub issue to start planning. Fork the repo and add your project materials.
Submit your project as a pull request to the main repository before the deadline.
Winners announced, and prizes awarded in DAI via Gitcoin!
This hackathon is borderless, remote and open to all free of charge. Prizes will be disbursed in the DAI stablecoin and sent to winning teams via Gitcoin.
We hope all participants will come in to the event ready to be creative, collaborative, and compassionate. Expect to learn, and to have fun building with people who believe in enabling the future of work through decentralized software. Don’t be shy to jump in on the Gitter to ask questions, meet people, and brainstorm ideas.
Nope. You can enter solo if you want. But building with friends is a lot more fun, isn’t it? Consider looking for other participants to help you realize your project idea, or finding an existing project to lend a hand to. If you happen to have a team already, that’s cool, too.
The lovely panel of judges you scrolled through to get to this FAQ will evaluate projects according to four criteria of equal weight: Creativity, Functionality, Design, and Difficulty. Have a look at the official rules for more information about scoring.
Only submissions before the deadline are eligible for prizes, but you might find that your project is worth working on after the event in its own right. We hope you (and your team) will continue to build with Colony as an open-source project this summer.
