Excited to announce that we have partnered with AWS to launch the Twitch Extension Challenge powered by AWS. To enter, all you have to do is build a Twitch Extension and integrate with any AWS service!

An Extension is an interactive experience that works as a stream overlay or as a panel on a channel. Streamers activate Extensions to further connect with their viewers and provide new ways to engage, such as leaderboards, mini-games, polls, and much more.

We will be selecting eight winning Extensions based on the criteria outlined below. The grand prize includes cash awards up to $15,000, tickets to TwitchCon 2019, and even meetings with Twitch leadership to talk through your ideas.

The challenge is three months, running until February 26, 2019. While that may seem like plenty of time to submit your Extension, you can get started now!

This looks really interesting! I’d definitely try to do this with some teammates, for fun and learning. Is there a recruitment thread anywhere?
