Quick-start guide

Thanks for joining Hack Productivity! 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, SharePoint, or Graph APIs. Submissions are open from now through January 31, 2017, at 5pm ET.

  1. Get set up right. Sign up for your free Microsoft developer account and find out more about the required tools and sample productivity scenarios 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. For more teammate tips, visit Find a Team.

We’re looking forward to seeing how your app will streamline work for businesses and organizations. Good luck!
