Team Formation

Broward College has partnered with CrowdForge to provide 201? BC Hackathon participants a way to form teams. When visiting the CrowdForge BC Hackathon page (also embedded below), look for a team to join. If you have an idea for a hackathon project, create your own team. When joining or creating a team, you will be asked to fill out a profile on CrowdForge. Use your own name and photo so that getting with team members who may not know each other is easier.

When filling out a profile, indicate the primary skill you will bring to a team from the list below. Note that you may bring more than one skill to the team but you can only have one primary skill.

When creating a team, indicate the skills that your team will need. For the Team Description indicate the proposed project/idea for a project that the team will be undertaking. Any proposed/desired technologies that the team may use can be entered in the Tech Tags field.
