Tips from a winner!

Dimas Nashiruddin Al Faruq took home the first place prize for his project, HayLingo!, in the Messaging track of our second Facebook Online Hackathon and wanted to share this quick tip help you along the way: 

Try to solve your own problem; it can be easier than solving somebody else’s. Also, you should validate the solution (idea) and try to find out whether your problem is a real problem for others in the related community (FB group, your competitor community, and so on).

Do you have a tip you’d like to share with your fellow devs?  Be sure to share it in the Facebook Online Hackathons Facebook Group; we know they’ll appreciate it!
