Congrats to the Deepgram Hackathon Winners!

It's the moment our Deepgram Hackathon participants have been waiting for! After a month-long submission period and a few weeks of submission review, we're thrilled to announce the winners of this community contest.

The Deepgram Hackathon took place from March 10-April 11, 2022. In partnership with our friends over at Deepgram, we were excited to host a fun and truly unique contest that challenged the community to write essays and case studies about Deepgram, build applications utilizing Deepgram, and cheer one another on.

After a careful review process by the DEV and Deepgram teams, we've selected our Grand Prize winners and Runners-Up across the "Build" and "Innovative Ideas" categories as well as our randomly-selected "Engagement Challenge" winners. Take a look at these awesome projects...

Winning this Hackathon means the world to me right now ❤️ I have worked so hard on my projects during the month, noting that I already have a job that is not related to tech. I was looking for any free time everyday to add something extra to my projects, I worked on weekends, holidays and overnight. Everyday I would sleep feeling very proud and excited for what I can add the next day.

The biggest thanks ever goes to Deepgam and Dev Community for giving us the opportunity to work with such amazing technology and inspire us to create great stuff.

Congratulations to all the winners 🥳, and for the rest of participants your projects are really cool and useful and you should feel absolutely proud of what you have created and learnt!

I can relate that it's not easy to squeeze some time between your daily job.
