Use Twitch's suite of developer product to build the (chat bot, data viz, extension, etc) of your dreams!

Join us for a 24-hour software development marathon as you compete (solo or with your #squad) to build crazy-cool projects using Twitch’s developer toolset. Twitch developers will be hanging out through the whole event, answering your questions about life at Twitch and helping you along with your apps, extensions, chat bots - whatever you can come up with!

TwitchCon loves students who love Twitch, because TwitchCon is all about bringing together the people that make Twitch, Twitch! All participants in the hackathon will receive a complimentary 3-day weekend pass to TwitchCon. That means live shows, meet and greets, and gaming all weekend! Not to mention our party on a ghost ship. Did we mention that the event is totally free?
