Hi everyone! HackJPS is right around the corner, and we know that everyone is excited for it to start. We want to share some free resources that our sponsors have provided for all participants to use.
Wolfram is providing everyone access to Wolfram|One for thirty days. Wolfram|One includes both Desktop and Cloud access, full access to the Wolfram Language and Knowledgebase, FreeCDF Deployment, 5000 Wolfram|Alpha API calls, 5000 Cloud Credits, 2 installations per user, and 2 GB of Cloud Storage.
This URL will take you to a sign-in page and prompt you to log in using your Wolfram ID. If you don't already have a Wolfram ID, you'll be prompted to create one using an active email address. Once logged in, you will see in the Downloads section which platforms of the software you have access to, with their accompanying activation keys. Please download the desktop version to your machine, boot up the application, and use the associated activation key when prompted. This will grant you full access for 30 days from your activation date.
When you access Wolfram|One in the cloud for the first time, you can create a new notebook or load a pre-made Things to Try live notebook, which is designed to guide you through neat things you can immediately compute in the Wolfram Language.
You can use Wolfram|One to create instant web apps and APIs, or to deploy to mobile. The Wolfram Language is also bundled on the Raspberry Pi, where you can connect directly to hardware, including Arduino, etc.
The fastest way to get an API up and running is detailed in the extensive Documentation Center available to you alongside your notebook: simply click the section in the documentation labeled Cloud and Deployment and select Instant APIs to access a handy how-to guide to help get you started.

NOTE: We have a ton of younger participants, and I want to emphasize that there are some restrictions.
You have to be at least the age of 13 to sign up for echoAR’s platform and at least the age of 16 to sign up for Wolfram’s platform
I understand that Discord also has an age restriction in place, where you have to be at least the age of 13 to make an account. A workaround for those who are younger is to have your parent/guardian sign up for an account and have them join the discord. Then, they can communicate any workshops that you are interested in attending and any important announcements to you.
Also, make sure you have joined the Devpost, as submissions and judging will be done through there. You will also need to mention your team members when submitting your project on Devpost. This is the only time you need to mention your team members.
