    Hi Danny,
    The areas that need to be in the local language are the educational pieces, but your whole submission can be in that language as well. So your written tutorials and your optional tutorial video should be in the local language, but your submission content doesn't need to be in the local language (walkthrough video, description, etc.). The judges that will review your local language submissions will be able to review in English and that local language.

    Michelle, quick question: it is valid to create a wiki on Github as a tutorial,add image and respecting the limit of the words (4000) and also, do we have to share the link in order to access to the tutorial on github. Best

    Hi Danny,
    The tutorial should be a step-by-step demonstration of one or more of the featured technologies based on a project you have built. It doesn't sound like a wiki would cover this.

    In terms of what you will need to share in your submission, we require the below items:
    - Written tutorial on GitHub (max 4000 words): The written portion of the tutorial must include citations wherever necessary (e.g. code inspiration). Tutorials and provided code must be Open Source and hosted on a publicly accessible GitHub repository.
    - Sampled Software on GitHub: A link to the publicly available Open Source software code that was used as a basis of the tutorial.
    - Walkthrough Video (hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or Youku): Your video should be 2 minutes long and serve as a walkthrough of your tutorial. This video does not need to be added within your tutorial but is required in your submission on Devpost.
    - MIT license: Include MIT Open Source licensing in your GitHub repository.

    Michelle, I am lost about what you share with me in your message regarding in what part of GitHub I can create the step by step tutorial. It is valid if I create a wiki where I can put step by step my tutorial description? If not, tell me where (inside the Github webiste) the tutorial it must be written. In the wiki that I created I described steb by steb (including image).

    Should I need to create the tutorial (step by step, 4000 words) inside the Read me file when I create the Repository in Github? BTW, the sample code is already submitted in the repository.

    Hi Danny,
    Sorry if my message was confusing. I thought you were asking if your tutorial content could be a wiki. In terms of where on Github your tutorial should be, you can put the tutorial in your Github readme file or use Github Pages.
    I hope this helps!
