Do you like developing awesome tools to make Twitch better for everyone while a big clock ticks down to 0:00 like you’re in an action movie? If you’re up for a fun and rewarding challenge, you should join us Saturday, September 28 for our 24-hour TwitchCon Hackathon presented by Major League Hacking.

Here’s how it works: Partnered streamers will approach us with ideas for new and useful extensions. Our expert staff will vet their ideas, and then teams of up to four hackers (that’s you!) will race to create prototypes of those extensions by the end of the Hackathon.
