Requesting JS Village Team Profiles

Fill Out Profile
We've narrowed the event down to four projects and are soliciting team bios for each project. In the spirit of community every team will get a dedicated page with featured profiles for all team members. Take the attached survey, and we'll post your photo, biography, and links to social profiles.

The above link takes you to a form where you can fill out a short survey that will be posted to the website. Join the team you like, and tell us about yourself.

Below are the four projects at JS Village.

The Real Debt Clock

Build the real debt clock based on sound math and accurate numbers.

Can I join a team as a beginner?

Should I lead a team?

We need sponsors, media coverage, and volunteers on the day of the event. And we need a great crowd with Phoenix pride to cheer our participants on!

What if I'm not a coder?

What makes this different from other hackathons?

Sponsors, prizes, good company, and feeling good about accomplishing something! All in a day's work! If you're looking for a job, update your LinkedIn profile before the last event. Do something awesome, and people will notice!
