Webinar Recording, Collaboration + More To Help You Build

Missed the AWS Raise-up Buildathon Kickoff Webinar last week?

Check out the recording where you’ll hear from three experts who will share more about the challenges nonprofits face and the ways in which the developer community can help organizations embrace digital solutions to improve donor engagement, enhance service delivery, and preserve cultural institutions.

Featured Speakers:

  • Michel Thatcher, Chief Executive Officer, Charity Navigator  
  • Michael Green, Chief Executive Officer, Social Progress Imperative
  • Ezra Wiesner, Chief Technology Officer, The SHED & President, CIOArts


Whether or not you have started building your AWS Raise-up Solution, the Slack Channel 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 Community Chat to ask the Devpost team questions!

Teaming up

Looking for a challenge team?  The Slack Channel 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


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 project, but could use a little help? In addition to asking questions in the Slack Channel 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!


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
