If you dig Twitch live streams and you like to hack, then you gotta enter the Twitch AWS Extensions Challenge before it ends on Feburary 26th.
Extensions are HTML5 apps that you can overlay on channels & streams, enabling you to create fully interactive experiences between content creators and viewers.
Your extension can be anything that enhances the streaming experience: a leader board, a mini-game, or maybe a walkthrough guide.
You must integrate at least one AWS service to be eligible, but that could be S3 for storing images, DynamoDB for state management, or lambda for building microservices.
What's in it for you? There are $26,500 in prizes including swag, a trip to TwitchCon 2019, and a meeting with Twitch execs!
Ready to get started? Register on Devpost and then check out the Twitch Extensions sandbox, a web-based WYSIWYG editor that makes it easy for developers to build, ship, and test Extensions with robust samples on a live channel.
Build a kickass application with MESG: a blockchain-compatible building platform, with decentralized capabilities, complete with an open unregulated marketplace of services.
Your MESG app could be anything from a multinational DApp store, to an automated business workflow, to an automatic payment of personal bills or linking real-time notifications to blockchain events. Submissions are due February 18th and there are $10,000 in prizes.
Alexa can help ease the lives of busy students, allowing them to focus on their studies. Whether it’s struggling with various classes, time management, or tutoring, Alexa can be a concierge, a study buddy, or a learning coach.

Corporate security is tough. While most companies use a variety of specialized tools to audit their attack surface, investigate attacks, and secure devices & user data, these tools aren't designed to communicate with each other.
Siloed software leads to hacky integrations which at best, don't work well and at worst, provide a false sense of security.
But, Microsoft believes you can solve these integration challenges using their new Graph Security API and is offering $15,000 in prizes to prove they're serious!
This API is a unified REST endpoint that makes it easy to access & act on security insights from an ecosystem of connected security solutions.
