Namaste Developer Entrepreneur!
Thank you for signing up for the first ever Freshworks App Challenge. Now that you have officially registered, we’ll be sending you regular updates throughout the competition. Here are some steps to help you get started.
If you are new to developing apps on the Freshworks Developer Platform, we recommend you start by reading the Introductory Guide. This will give you an overview of the Platform’s capabilities.
Once you have finished going through the Guide, we have a handy list compiled for you with tools you will need to build apps.
- Signing up for a developer account to test apps as you build them (See below)
- Setting up the Freshworks CLI (fdk)
- (Optional) Following the App SDK documentation to build your first app for the product you are building apps for: Freshdesk or Freshservice
As you start building apps, keep the links to App SDK documentation handy for the product you are working on:
We also have solution-oriented tutorials that you can follow to learn more about specific Platform features and use-case implementations.
We have compiled a list of sample apps by building blocks (Platform features) as well as by product. Take a look at these when you seek inspiration, or if you want to know how the pieces fit together.
If you are stuck at any point, you can reach us by:
- Opening a new topic in this forum and tagging the topic with “app-challenge”
Once your app is ready for the App Challenge, follow the App Challenge submission guidelines and process to add your entry. We have also listed the judging criteria in the same document.
