Do I need to know how to write a code in order to participate in the hackathon?
The hackathon is open for anyone who is familiar with Python or JS. It will also be quite natural for people with C++ background to dive into the platform.
What do I need to do before the Hackathon?
We recommend thinking about a business app that will be useful for the hoteling and hostpiatliy industries. Apps like "room service" (bring X from point A to point B) or cleaning the batrhoom can be an awesome ideas.
Do not worry if you don't have an app in mind. We will provide a recommended list of apps that will be implemented on Gary and will be available to our clients, which includes Airbnb hosts and hotels.
You can try to develop with our emulator tool, but you will need Gary in order to test the app before we release it to the public.
How do I apply to the Hackathon?
You can submit the application form
here. We will invite 5 teams to the first batch will be held during December 14-15, 2021.

It is also recommended that one of the team members will have some kind of experience in AI, ML or in computer vision.
What's in it for me?

2. Monetization! Beside the happiness of seeing people worldwide enjoying your product, and impacting the lives of consumers and businesses, each app that is used by our clients entitles you to be rewarded with a fee of $5-10 per month for each device on which it is downloaded and used.
