The Mailchain hackathon concluded on April 14, 2023, with members participating. Sponsors are becoming more interested in the hackathon series, and it is gradually becoming a recurring sequence. The current hackathon guidelines are available on the Dev Dao Wiki.
Starter Kits development is to be rolled out for D_D members to contribute and as a resource for developers to get started quickly with projects. Please see the starter kit guidelines here as work on a demo starter kit is in progress.
Axelar and Flipside have partnered to bring you the Interchain Hackathon and are inviting D_D Members to participate. This is the perfect opportunity for those with a Web3 project or idea to take the leap and earn funding. The prize pool is $90,000, with a grand prize of $40,000 and a chance to get your project funded by industry leaders. See the #announcement channel for more details and the commencement of the hackathon.
We are currently working out a biweekly schedule for community workshops, which will begin soon. The workshops will be experimental and depend on contributors' availability. A guideline for contributor payment and communication is being developed. Please keep an eye on this space as the process progresses.
The Sol.Ladies scholars head to Austin next Thursday, April 20, 2023. @scarlett | build pr3tti will be meeting them and getting IRL feedback on their experience.
In the future, DDW will prefer to select scholarship applicants who are relatively local over global applicants. US hackathons, for example, would prioritize US-based applicants, while European hackathons would prioritize Europe-based applicants, and so on. This information will be included in any future DDW-sponsored hackathons.

The team discussed and agreed upon a vision for the next iteration of the Academy platform. The redesign will feature a sequential/linear project tracks page with three tracks focusing on an intro to Ethereum, building a tiered NFT, and building an ERC20 token.
The team aims to create a well-rounded learning platform with good aesthetics, functionality, user registration, progress saving, pedagogically sound content, and thoughtful quizzes, aligned with the initially set OKRs.
