Build IoT projects with the Notecard, publish them on Hackster, and get paid!Director of Developer Relations
When I’m learning about new products or technologies (especially in the maker and IoT spaces) I rely a lot on Hackster. Between the product reviews, news and blog articles, and in-depth community tutorials, I’m regularly inspired to either replicate or expand upon published projects.
Here at Blues Wireless we think, actually we know, a lot of you followed the same journey as an introduction to the Notecard, Notecarrier, Swan, and Notehub.io with our Hackster tutorials. By way of building an ML-powered speed trap, a fire-breathing pumpkin, or even a backyard pest detector, you may have been inspired to add easy wireless IoT connectivity to your own solution.
This is why we are happy to introduce a new community initiative here at Blues Wireless, the Most Valuable Hackster program (a.k.a. MVH)!
We are inviting you, our community, to build and publish your own projects to Hackster (and more importantly, get paid to do so).
tl;dr: Blues Wireless is offering free hardware and reimbursement ranging from $500-$1500 USD for the creation and publishing project tutorials on Hackster. Read on for the full details:
Here is how we envision the MVH program working, from start to finish:
You’re not limited to just one project and this program is available globally (reimbursement methods may vary depending on country).
We don’t want to create too many requirements per se, as our hope is that your imagination guides you to places we can’t even dream! However we do have some basic “guardrails” to make sure the project you’re creating is valuable to the broader community:
Need help with your writeup? English not your first language? As long as you can put together a well-structured article, we have writers that can help clean up your project as needed.
