Winners of the 2020 Facebook Developer Circles Community Challenge will walk away with USD 133,000.

In this year’s competition, developers will be required to create innovative and immersive tutorials that help fellow developers build with Facebook technologies

Facebook Developer Circles are a global network of local communities, designed to support developers as they build skills, grow ideas and boost their careers. 

“It’s often said that the best way to learn is to become the teacher. For this year’s Community Challenge, we invite you to put your own innovative spin on developer education by creating written tutorials that showcase the capabilities of Facebook technologies. Every participant will receive special access to online education experiences with technology experts,” the organisers say.

Winners will have their written tutorials credited and shared amongst millions of developers and creators across the Facebook ecosystem.

“While we generally see most submissions in English, we’re also offering special language prizes across Arabic, French, Indonesian, Portuguese and Spanish,” added the statement.

Developers will be required to write a step-by-step guide on different technologies including :-

  • Open Source: Hack, React, React Native, PyTorch, Docusaurus
  • Spark AR
  • Wit.ai
  • Messenger Platform 

“You can create a written tutorial about your newly built software solution, or use a solution that you’ve built in the past. You can also choose to focus on a specific component within the solution,” adds the guide.

The Global First Place – English Tutorial for Beginners will walk away with USD10,000 and an Oculus headset (ARV: USD 399, 1 per individual, 4 max per Org or Team). The runners up will get USD7,000.

The prizes will be the same for advanced developers.

Submissions can be made  here by October 26, 2020.
