Software Development Kit (SDK)

Maxonrow SDK allows developers to build customized interfaces and applications to interact with Maxonrow’s blockchain.

Developers can focus on improving user experience and developing business models when they use our SDK. It is perfect for teams who have application and product development capabilities but are unable to maintain an entire system. The modularized design of Maxonrow's blockchain also allows our team to launch subsequent applications and function updates seamlessly.

Who Can Join?

Developers
Blockchain Enthusiasts
Students
Freelancers

MAXathon FAQ

A hackathon is an intense and fun collaborative hacking marathon. Here, ‘hack’ means to create something entirely new from things that already exist—think ‘MacGyver’. Developers, designers, marketers, data scientists, start-ups, joined by tech partners, have to develop new products or services within 48 hours in response to challenges posed by the hackathon sponsor.
Not all participants need to be developers. However, you will need to demonstrate a prototype, so forming a team that accounts for design, UX flow, and code is a great way to go. You will have an opportunity to do this in the morning of the hackathon. You may also want to recruit colleagues with a broad range of skills to register before the hackathon.
To participate, click the Join Now button on our navigation bar and fill out the form.
Registration is open 21st January 2020 - 17th April 2020, one day before the hackathon starts.  
What registration fee? MAXathon is a completely free event! :-)
Venue: Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park
Venue Address: C/o Lohmühlenstraße 65, 12435 Berlin, Germany
Registered participants will receive all the necessary information ahead of the event.
Here are some benefits described by people who have participated in other internal hackathons:
• "It’s a new way of working, in a more agile, interdisciplinary, and collaborative form."
• "Challenge yourself, learn by doing and improve your skills."
• "Have a fun and life-changing experience."
• "Turn your knowledge into a concrete and innovative product/service."
• "Collaborate on a project that might be implemented in real life."
Teams can be formed and grouped either:
• ahead of time if you are coming to the hackathon with people you know, or
• or virtually by posting on the platform and joining the team formation webinar happening the a week before the hackathon.

There will also be an opportunity to pitch your idea, your team, and/or yourself on-site to recruit more team members; or get yourself to be recruited into a team in the morning of day 1 before coding begins.
Teams should have 2–6 members. No matter the number of teammates, make sure to cover all hats: development, design (UI/UX), business, and pitch. A single participant can wear several hats!
Track 1: GOVERNANCE
Track 2: HEALTHCARE
Track 3: EDUCATION
