Hi I was wondering if you have a Github account we can share our private solution with. Thanks.

    Hi Evan,

    Thanks for joining! We require a public link to your code repository so you shouldn't need to share your private repository with us. If your final solution/project is private, it is best for you to provide access through your submission by including login credentials and testing instructions.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

    Hi Michelle, thanks for responding. What do you mean by "provide access through your submission by including login credentials"? Do you mean login credentials to my github?

    Hi Evan,

    Thanks for clarifying. Please do NOT provide login credentials for your Github. The login credentials would be in the case where your end solution is private (working software/website/functioning demo etc.). These credentials would allow for testing and for the judges to see your solution in action.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

    Ah okay. I misunderstood a bit because other online hackathons I've participated in allowed users to give repo access to a single user's github owned by the hackathon organizers.
    "We require a public link to your code repository" that makes sense. Thanks

    Evan, there are issues with making certain projects public. For example, if I build an iOS app and include access to certain 3rd party services, the keys to those services will be in the source code.

    Hi Evan and Ed,
    The team has decided to accept private repositories. Please share your private repository with angeline.nguyen@drchrono.com and testing@devpost.com. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Happy Building!

    Thanks Michelle. BTW I don't see using DrChrono APIs under "Requirements" or "Judging Criteria" does this mean using their APIs is not required?

  • Manager   •   10 months ago

    Hi Evan,

    Yes, using the DrChrono API is a requirement for your project. Under Project Requirements, you should see the below:
    (i) What to Create: Entrants must create a working software application using DrChrono API that innovates in Virtual & Integrated Healthcare. (each a “Project”).

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks!
