Welcome to the PartyRock Generative AI Hackathon by AWS: a challenge for all builders to get hands-on making generative AI-powered apps. In this challenge, you’ll use PartyRock, an Amazon Bedrock Playground as a fast and fun way to learn about Prompt Engineering and Foundational Models (FMs) to build a functional app with generative AI. Experiment with prompts to build an app based on one of four challenge categories or Remix the featured Side Quest app for more ways to compete!

Get started and join the AWS Community Discord to run your ideas by other hackers or to get help from the PartyRock team.

  • Experimental Entertainment - interactive story, Role Playing Games, etc;
  • Freestyle - any project that doesn’t fall into one of the categories above.
