The Solana Foundation is excited to announce Solana Season, a global hackathon focused on Web3, DeFi, and NFTs. Solana Season will take place over the course of three weeks starting on May 15th!
The winter hackathon saw over 3,000 registrations and 100+ final projects submitted, so this time we’re expanding our reach across use case verticals, with additional regional tracks in China, India, Eastern Europe, and Brazil. Each track will have its own set of supporting projects and a panel of judges, as well as offline workshops and events.
