Challenge 1: Add Passkey support using the Passwordless.dev API in an existing project
Add Passwordless.dev to help secure an existing project or platform, e.g. Wordpress plugin, Umbraco, a community project or your personal site.
Challenge 2: Build an SDK in your programming language or framework
Make passwordless authentication possible and easy to use in your favorite ecosystem. We’ve written community guidelines for creating a new sdk in the passwordless/create-a-sdk repo
