We are rapidly approaching the kickoff date for CoinParty. I know many of you are still wanting to find people to build teams with. Having a strong team with a diverse set of talents is going to give you the best chance possible at winning some of those juicy prizes, and having a great time doing it!
Let People Know Who You Are on DevPost
If you haven’t done so yet, make sure you have signed up for CoinParty at coinparty.devpost.com. Apart from being a requirement to enter the hackathon, it’s also a key place to be able to find other team mates or existing teams to join.
Once you have signed up, make sure you include a comprehensive description of yourself in your bio. This should include: your skills, what you want to work on and who you are looking to work with.
Post a Message On Our Slack
Firstly, if you haven’t done so yet, join our slack at https://join.slack.com/t/bitcoinunlimited/shared_invite/zt-i9n96rbl-MFozOEq69EXHwb~65mEtKg. It’s where all the cool kids are ;)
Once you are in there, make sure to post a message on our slack in the #coinparty_general channel saying ‘hi’ and introducing yourself to the other CoinPartygoers. Get stuck in and ask people if they have a team to join, or if you have a team are looking for more people to join you.
Join In The Team Building Posts In Our Slack
Today we will be posting two message threads. One message thread for people who have a team/project and are looking for more members. In this thread you should post there if you already have a team or a project you will be working on with a short description of the project. You should state how many new team members you are looking for and what skills you are looking for. People who are looking for a team can then private message these teams asking to join them or find out more about the project.
Another message thread is for people who want to join an existing team. In this thread you should post here what kind of project you want to work on (or if you are willing to work on any project) and what your skills are. Teams who are looking for extra members can then private message these people asking if they would like to join their team or finding out more about them.
Join Our Pre-drink Sessions
We will be hosting three ‘pre-drinks’ sessions in the run up to CoinParty. These sessions will give everyone a chance to hang out together, ask any questions about things you are still unsure about, and build teams. If you have a project and are still looking for teammates then you will be given the opportunity to present your project and ask people to join you. Similarly, if you are looking to join a team, you will have a chance to introduce yourself and ask teams to reach out to you if they want you to join them.
The ‘Pre-drinks’ Sessions schedule is:
- Thursday 7th January - 18:00-19:30 (UTC+0)
- Friday 8th January - 10:00-12:30 (UTC+0)
- Monday 11th January - 18:00-19:30 (UTC+0)
You can join these sessions using the following Zoom link https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84639686076 and meeting ID: 846 3968 6076.
If after doing all the above you are still looking for a team or teammates then please reach out to me and I will do my best to get you set up with a great team!
If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post them in our Slack in the #coinparty_general channel.
