Is your project on track?

If you haven't saved your Devpost submission yet, do so now! You can edit your submission as much as you want before February 7 at 5 pm ET.

Make sure your project meets the requirements before you get too deep into the build.

Submission checklist

  • Are you building a machine learning project with Amazon SageMaker Studio Lab that improves disaster response?
  • Have you provided access to your code repository by making it public and adding an Open Source license to it?
  • Have you created a submission video? Does your video show your project functioning and explain why you built it and with what? (See our video-making best practices.)
  • Did you add all of your team members and note their contributions on the submission?

Once you think you are done, ask a friend or even the Discord community for feedback or guidance on how to make your project better.
