If you've been following any of our recent blog posts, such as:

then you might know that we have an amazing agenda planned for you, see the full agenda here, at the JiveWorld16 Developer Conference.

 

But knowing the agenda and being ready for the conference are two completely different things.  Our goal for the JiveWorld Developer Conference is to be extremely interactive and hands-on, that way developers can head back to their jobs with momentum to start their next Jive integration using their new skills.  To help achieve this goal, we've put together a quick guide for developers (old and new) on how to best to prepare for the best Jive developer event of the year!

 

 


 

Getting Ready for the Tri-Hackathon

The Tri-Hackathon will test your skills in the following hacker disciplines:  coding, trivia and video games.  While trivia and video games will be difficult to suggest recommended training programs, the coding challenge is a bit easier.

 

  1. Register for the Jive Developer Sandbox, see instructions: How to Access the Official Jive Developer Sandbox
  2. Install the Jive SDK for Node.js ... or familiarize yourself with one of our open-source in-progress SDKs on GitHub.
  3. Install ngrok on your laptop.  This will give you ultimate flexibility on the conference WiFi allowing the Jive Developer Sandbox to communicate with your local dev environment.

 

<hint>Take a look and maybe try some of the node.js tutorials, this might come in handy.  </hint>
