Create solutions that address our world today, connectivity, and security! Over 10k worth of total prizes and SWAG will be handled out to teams with the best ideas.

We are very excited to announce our first ever hackathon!

The event will run for three days from August 7th through August 9th. There are three categories and multiple chances to win cash prizes, gift cards, and SWAG. Winners will be announced on August 17th. 

The three categories include: 

  • Addressing after effects: solutions that address the after effects of COVID-19
  • Security: solutions that create secure connections
  • Connectivity: help to keep remote friends/co-workers/family connected

We also have some amazing individuals who have partnered with us as judges. These partners come from many awesome companies such as Vercel, Gatsby, DigitialOcean, Ionic, and AWS. 

While not required, submissions that use Auth0 or any of the partner's technologies can potentially receive a higher score than those that do not. 

We can't wait to see what you'll create!
