Ways to Collaborate 

Whether or not you have started building your Celo's Make Crypto Mobile Hackathon project, the Discord server is the perfect place to connect with other developers!

Not only can you bounce ideas off each other and ask other developers for technical help, but you can also use the Discord server to ask the Celo team questions!

Teaming up
Looking for a team? The Discord server can also help you connect with potential teammates. You can also use the challenge Participants Tab to search for other developers looking to team up, check out their skills and message them to see if they want to collaborate. Alternatively, fill out this form to get matched with a teammate. 

Figuring out where to start with your project can sometimes be a hurdle in your building journey. The Resources Tab can be a great place to find your footing and take advantage of the documents and other helpful tips.

Already working on your application, but could use a little help? In addition to asking questions in the Discord server or Discussion forum, these resources are there to assist and may bring you one step closer to a winning project.

Now it’s time to get connected - we can’t wait to see your project!
