Quick-start guide

Thanks for joining Hack Productivity 4! You're officially registered now, and we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the competition.

Here’s how to get started building a workplace productivity app using the Office 365 tools. The submission period opens on May 7, 2018 and ends August 7, 2018, at 5pm ET.

  1. Get set up right. Sign up for your free Microsoft developer account and find out more about the required tools on the Resources page.
  2. Get a head start on your submission. 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.
  3. Optional: Form a team. Thinking about collaborating with another developer or startup? Visit the participants page to find and meet teammates. You can see who else is looking for a teammate, check out what’s in their portfolio, and send them a message to connect.

We’re looking forward to seeing how your app will help people work smarter, not harder. Good luck!
