Collaboration, Resources + More To Help You Build

Whether or not you have started building your solution, the Facebook Hackathon Group is the perfect place to connect with other participants.  Here you can ask questions about the hackathon, get technical help and brainstorm ideas with other developers.  There will also be mentors available throughout the challenge to answer posted questions as best they can.

Teaming up

Looking for a challenge team?  The Facebook Group can also help you connect with potential teammates.  You can also use the Challenge Participants Page to search for other developers looking to team up, check out their skills and message them to see if they want to collaborate.


Figuring out where to start with your project can sometimes be a hurdle in your building journey.  The Resources tab can be a great place to find your footing and take advantage of the documents and other helpful tips. Be sure to check out the FAQs to see if there is anything that may be of assistance to you.

Already working on your project, but could use a little help? In addition to asking questions in the Facebook Group, the Facebook Community forum, or Discussion forum, these resources are there to assist and may bring you one step closer to a winning project. 

Facebook Live Q&A

Another avenue of help for your project is the new Facebook Live Q&A sessions.  Be sure to take advantage of the Facebook Developers on the line - keep an eye out for more on the dates and details.

Now it’s time to get connected and start collaborating!
