Redis Hackathon Winners, Announced!

In August, we announced a new challenge on DEV, in partnership with our friends at Redis: the Redis Hackathon.

Our amazing community was challenged with leveraging Redis' strengths as a multi-model primary database to build brand new apps or to simplify an existing app. Submissions were to be filed in one of four categories: MEAN/MERN Mavericks, Microservice Mavens, Minimalism Magicians, and Wacky Wildcards.

It's never easy for contest judges to pick winners and this hackathon was even harder to decide with 25 winners to choose in total. Even so, judges from the DEV and Redis 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 Redis Hackathon on DEV!

MEAN/MERV Mavericks: @subhamx

Microservice Mavens: @dmw

Minimalism Magicians: @facsiaginsa

Minimalism Magicians: @rajeshj3

  • $2,000 USD gift card or equivalent 🤑
  • $300 USD credit to the Forem Shop 😎
  • An extra $200 for those who included a 5-minute video 💰
  • DEV Sticker Pack ✨
  • DEV “Redis Hackathon” Grand Prize profile badge 🏆

And, our 20 Runners-Up, in random order!

All runners-up will receive:

  • $200 USD gift card or equivalent 💰
  • $150 USD credit to the Forem Shop 🌈
  • An extra $200 for those who included a 5-minute video 💵

Holy smokes, I won! First off, I want to give a big congratulations to everyone involved in this event; it was a fantastic display of skill and talent, and I'm truly honored to have been a part of it. Special thanks go out to the DEV community and Redis for making this all possible; without you, none of this would have been possible.

This event has also motivated me to continue working on the FAR3 stack as the future of the web. The FAR3 stack is blazingly fast and incredibly versatile, and I believe it has a bright future. So thank you again; time to go GYM.
