At Miro, our mission is to empower teams to create the next big thing. That’s why we created a tool designed for modern work, enabling teams to communicate and collaborate without the constraints of a physical location, meeting space, or whiteboard. The way we work has changed drastically, and teams are optimizing for the “future of work” today. Distributed ways of working are becoming a norm, creating an opportunity to redefine what collaboration looks like.
This weekend, we invite you to use the Miro platform to expand on our mission and empower your own audience to create and collaborate in today’s world.
We’ve been working on some new things for our platform, and for this challenge, you’ll have access to a preview of what’s coming. The Miro platform includes both a Web SDK and a REST API. The Miro Web SDK allows you to interact with a board inside of Miro, even creating custom applications. The Miro REST API allows you to pull information from and pass information to a board, which supports creating integrations both with the Web SDK or with any other application you may have. You can use one or both of these tools to create your solution that helps teams build the next big thing.
We want you to show us what you’ve got. Feel free to create something entirely new, or to take an existing concept and apply it in a new way.
Miro’s infinite canvas empowers more than 20M users to brainstorm, map ideas, build a plan, and generally just work — whether they are sitting at the same conference table or collaborating across continents. This challenge offers you the opportunity to build integrations that could improve the workday for millions of people. You can aim to make something for the everyday user, or to create an integration that an enterprise could install for every employee. We welcome your creativity, and we look forward to seeing what you will do.
During the event, you’ll be using a developer preview of the Miro platform. We’ll have a getting-started guide for participants to browse once the event begins.
We understand that a developer preview may introduce some unexpected challenges. So we will have a team of mentors available for office hours during the following times. In addition, we may have bonus support late at night or early in the morning, and we will be sure to post those extra times as they come up.
Office Hours (UTC+2):
Friday, Nov 19:
11pm-1am (late-night support)
Saturday, Nov 20:
10pm-1am (late-night support)
Feel free to reach out to our team of mentors for support— whether you encounter a technical issue or whether you just need to clarify an idea you have.
Prizes will be awarded for the top 3 submissions. These three teams will receive a monetary award, as noted below.
First Place team – €2500
Second Place team – €1500
Third Place team – €1000
In addition, each member of a winning team will receive a Miro merch pack.
