Calling all developers, we are excited to announce that Developer Tools are coming to Upland! These tools will enable unprecedented access to the Upland platform, allowing developers to build the next generation of tools and applications. We are committed to creating a robust set of tools to power unique experiences in the metaverse - and this marks the first step in that direction.
Developer Tools & Genesis Hackathon
To celebrate Upland’s upcoming Developer Tools, Upland will be hosting its first-ever Hackathon with a grand prize of a $50,000-grant to help realize the developer’s vision! Developers will be challenged to build a new application, service, or experience that leverages the newly announced tools, which for the first time go beyond just read-only APIs.
A representative of each group that advances to the finals will be invited to Las Vegas to pitch their project in person to the Upland team and community. Each presentation will be critiqued by our panel of judges, and the winning team will be announced at the Upland Awards Party on June 10th. Those who attend in person will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite project that will receive a special “Community’s Choice” award.
Note: Hotel and Airfare for finalists will be provided by the Upland Team.
Genesis Design Challenge
That’s not all! In addition, we will be hosting a Design Challenge for creators to design a unique NFT to be shared with the Upland community. This is yet another opportunity to have your designs brought to life in the metaverse! The winning design will be sold in Upland, with a large portion of the revenue to be shared with the creator.
Details, guidelines, and technical specifications will be shared when the Challenges begin on May 31, 2022 and will culminate at the Genesis Week celebration on June 10th.
