Getting Started

Thanks for joining the AWS IoT App Challenge! You're officially registered now and we'll be sending you updates throughout the competition.

Get started building your project. Submissions are due November 16 at 5pm PT.

  1. Sign up for the tools. Create an AWS IoT Platform account on AWS and request $25 AWS Credits to apply toward Amazon Kinesis charges for your submission.
  2. Plan your attack. Visit the Resources page for documentation and additional resources.
  3. Get a head start. Fill out the basic fields on the application form and familiarize yourself with the submission requirements. This will give you a good idea of what you'll need to put together.
    Remember: you can edit your submission as many times as you like before the deadline.
  4. Form a team. This is optional but recommended! To form a team, visit the Participants page to find and meet teammates. You can also see who is looking for a teammate and message them to connect. Consider signing up for the AWS IoT App Challenge Slack channel where you can meet & chat with other hackers!


We're here to help. If you have any questions about the hackathon, post on the discussion forum!
