Bots for Good Hack Day – FB Developer Circles Bangalore

We believe that bots for Messenger can also have a strong impact on social good in India.

That’s why Developer Circles from Facebook is launching the Bots for Good Challenge*, an intercity challenge in India to recognize and reward developers who build the most innovative bots that solve local challenges. Teams of up to 3 people are invited to participate in the Challenge. Each individual could only be part of one team, and each team can only submit one bot to this challenge.

The submission period runs from 29 May 2016 to 19 June 2017. See more information about the Bots for Good by Developer Circles from Facebook at:
