Linode + DEV Hackathon Winners, Announced!

In February, we announced a new challenge on DEV, in partnership with our friends at Linode: the Linode + DEV Hackathon!

Our brilliant participants were challenged to build brand new apps using Akamai Cloud Computing services based on Linode. Submissions were to be filed in one of five categories: Edgeworker Experts, Integration Innovators, SaaS Superstars, Smooth Shifters, and Wacky Wildcards.

It's never easy for contest judges to pick just one Grand Prize winner per category and 10 runners-up and this time was no different. Even so, judges from the DEV and Linode teams managed to pick our winners and I'm excited to share them with you today!

Let's take a look at the winning projects for the Linode + DEV Hackathon!

EdgeWorker Experts: @darthbenro008

Integration Innovators: @khushboo

SaaS Superstars: @drishtipeshwani

Smooth Shifters: @narottam04

Wacky Wildcards: @ankitdevelops

All Grand Prize Winners will receive:

  • $1,000 USD gift card or equivalent 🤑
  • $300 USD credit to the DEV Shop 😎
  • Microsoft Azure Sticker Pack 🎁
  • DEV Sticker Pack ✨
  • DEV “Linode” Grand Prize profile badge 🏆

And, our 10 Runners-Up, in random order!

All runners-up will receive:

  • $250 USD gift card or equivalent 💰
  • $150 USD credit to the DEV Shop 🌈
  • Microsoft Sticker Pack ⭐️
  • DEV Sticker Pack 💻
  • DEV “Linode” Runner-Up profile badge 🌟


All participants with a valid project will receive a DEV Sticker Pack and a “Linode” participant profile badge. 🎉

To everyone who submitted a project for this hackathon, we're giving you a huge round of applause. In the process of building your project, you sharpened your skills while learning something new. That's something to be very proud of.

Our team will follow up with all winners and participants about their prizes, gift codes, and stickers tomorrow, Tuesday, March 21. Starting tomorrow, badges should also appear on all participants and winners' profiles. Contact us if you have not received information about your prize by March 31st at

Great work, everyone! We hope you had a blast participating in the Linode + DEV Hackathon!
