  6. Since there is no specific technology mentioned, are there any restrictions on using a number of pre-built libraries? There is no restriction to use any language, technology stack, or libraries. You can use any of them to create a web/mobile application. Our only requirement is you use Slash GraphQL as backend.

  7. Do I need to give a demo for the product that I have built? If you want you can submit a small presentation or video that demos your submission, however, it's not mandatory, and only good to have. In case you are one of the finalists, you might be invited to demo your application at an online event, details of which will be shared with sufficient advance notice.

  8. Who will own the IP (Intellectual Property) Rights to the product that I have built? IP rights would be owned by you. All submissions must be released under an open-source license, APL 2.0 (the same license as Dgraph itself).
