Baserow Developer Challenge

We’re launching the first-ever Baserow Challenge! The challenge is to create a new Baserow app that increases productivity while using the Baserow API. This is a great opportunity to showcase your development skills, creativity, and have fun while building with Baserow. Build it, and you could win a Sony PlayStation 5! 🤯

Challenge details

You have 17 days to create a new application using Baserow as a backend. The challenge starts at 09:00 am CET on Thursday, February 22nd, 2024.

Here are the guidelines:

  • Submit your work by 11:59 pm CET on Sunday, March 10th, 2024.
  • Develop anything you want—a project, app, tool, extension, workflow, integration, or plugin—as long as it’s created around the Baserow API (Baserow is used as the backend), and makes some type of workflow more productive.


There are three categories for which prizes will be awarded:

  • 1st place: Sony PlayStation 5 and a Baserow swag box
  • 2nd place: $100 gift card
  • 3rd place: $100 gift card


To submit your project, please fill out this form by 11:59 pm CET on Sunday, March 10th, 2024. All submission materials must be in English.

What to submit:

  • App built with Baserow (URL to your app and documentation)
  • Link to a repository
  • Text description explaining the features and functionality of your app
  • Screenshot demonstrating the app's capabilities
  • 2-3 minute demo video (optional)


  • You must use Baserow as a backend.
  • You must publish the source code of your application.
  • You should create a working software application (it does not have to be fully completed, but it should be an app that can be launched).
  • Your project should be created during the event or include significant updates if you have previously built it.
  • You can use any programming language or framework.
  • Bonus points if you include a simple video demonstrating the app and how it works.

Community help

If you have any questions about the Baserow API or need assistance when building your application, you can seek help here in the Baserow community forum. Navigate to the category #DeveloperChallenge and ask for help by making a new post there.

Getting started

Once the challenge starts, we'll share the app ideas and problem statements related to productivity. This way, you can decide what to build if you're not sure about any ideas. Moreover, we'll share a video tutorial on how to navigate Baserow's code base and work with the Baserow API. It will help you get started smoothly!
