Frequently asked questions

How many contributions can I make and how will they count?

Feel free to make as many contributions as you like to participate in as many categories as you want. For example, a video tutorial will give you points for the prize draw, and also let you participate in the video tutorials competition category. Or you can submit an integration idea for the ideas competition and also implement it and get points for the prize draw.

I don't have GitHub sponsorship available in my country. How can I receive the cash prize?

In case GitHub sponsorship is not available we will try to determine with you if there are any alternative options possible (bank transfer, gift voucher, etc)

Why do I need to submit the form with my contact details?

GitHub doesn’t currently allow privately contacting contributors within their platform, therefore we need your contact details to ensure the prizes can reach the winners

My PR cannot get merged before the contest deadline. What should I do?

Please reach out to us via community Slack as soon as possible. We will do our best to help you

I have some questions. How can I reach you?

You can always get in touch with us via our Community Slack

I have submitted the form but want to change it.

You should be able to edit the responses in the form and this is the best way to make edits before the submission deadline. In the worst case if you can’t access your previous response, you could submit another form, but please add some notes about that in the comments section.

How will I know if I win?

We will review all the submissions and make the draw during the first week of November (or mid-November for video tutorials, as per the rules). We will communicate the winners in our Community Slack, GitHub discussions and email them individually.

What should be the quality of the contributions?

MindsDB engineers will be reviewing all the code contributions thoroughly. If they do not pass tests or do not meet the contribution guidelines, we will reject the PRs.
For the non-code deliverables, we may also reject formal, nearly duplicative, low-quality submissions. No manipulations for earning points!
