Last Chance to Join the 2021 GitHub Actions Hackathon on DEV!

This is your final reminder that the 2021 GitHub Actions Hackathon on DEV closes on Wednesday, December 8th, 2021 @ 11:59 PM PT (8 AM UTC the following day)

The 2021 GitHub Actions Hackathon is nearing an end and we've already seen so many incredible submissions from the community (seriously — go check them out here). With that said, we know that early submissions aren't everyone's style and some of you are more of the last minute types 😉 So consider this your official nudge to get that GitHub Actions Hackathon project in while you can!

As a reminder, all participants with a valid submission will receive a limited edition profile badge and a sticker pack. 10 runners up will win all of that plus $250 USD cash (or the equivalent value in your local currency) and a $150 USD gift code to the DEV shop. Five lucky grand prize winners will receive a sticker pack, a limited-edition profile badge, $1,500 USD in cash, and $300 USD at the DEV shop!

Hey everyone 👋 How about having your favorite song on the collaborative playlist of all developers?

All you need is a simple issue on the Developers' Playlist repository:

GitHub logo oz9un / Developers-Playlist

A drop of musical taste from every contributor... Welcome to the developer's collaborative playlist.

Developers' Playlist \(📀_💿)/

A drop of musical taste from every contributor... Welcome to the developers' collaborative playlist.

Playlist link: Developers' Collaborative Playlist


The same algorithm can be written differently by each developer. The developer's code style becomes their signature.

Coding is an art, so what do artists listen to while performing this art?

The Developer's Playlist analyzes opened issues on this repository using GitHub Actions and collects developers' favorite songs into a collaborative playlist.


  • Open an issue with title 'song request'
  • Write your favorite track to issue's body in format: -
  • Wait for the Github Action Bot's response.
  • Enjoy the developers' collaborative playlist!
  • You can also keep track of who added which songs by checking out the contributors section!
