Join the May Dev Cook-Off with Linea

April flew by and we’re thrilled for another Dev Cook-Off in Linea steeped with hacking and learnings to help web3 developers build on Linea, win prizes, and connect with our team and other builders. Our April Cook-Off was a huge success with over 500 registrants and 30+ submissions, and we can’t wait to see what you builders build next.

You can claim builder NFTs, and join the Linea Builders Club through Aspecta.

What’s new for the May Dev Cook-Off?

For the May Dev Cook-Off, the submission criteria remains largely the same – start a new project, brush off an old one, or show us what you’re continuing to build every month! However, we have some new tracks for you to explore the breadth of what’s possible on Linea.

$500 USD Dune API pool prize

Dune is crypto's data platform. Teams and individuals alike use Dune to explore, query, access, and export blockchain data. Dune's community of data engineers, devs, researchers, and analysts use the platform to gain deeper insights into blockchain activity. Dune provides organized, decoded and human-readable blockchain data, across 30+ chains and 1.5M+ datasets.

We’re thrilled to announce that Dune is sponsoring an additional $500 in prizes to the top 5 projects that incorporate Dune API.

If you don’t know where to start, try building a Farcaster Frame! Here is a sample repo and a quick tutorial on how to use Dune API to build a Farcaster frame checking your LXP points. Jackie, the Dune developer advocate, is always available if you need help with finding an endpoint for data or want to bounce ideas. You can find her contact info on Telegram, Warpcast, and Twitter.

Please note that this Dune API track is a separate track than building Dune dashboard, which will qualify for the general 1 ETH pool prize.
