Announcing the Budibase Hackathon - Over $5K in prizes ๐ŸŽ‰
โ€‹There's a new opportunity to level up your software development skills and contribute to open-source while educating others and earning incredible prizes.

โ€‹From October 1 until October 25, Budibase is offering developers an unmissable opportunity to build and contribute integrations and components to benefit open source in exchange for prizes. Read on for more details about Budibase and how you can join the hackathon.


โ“ What is Budibase?

Budibase is an open-source low-code platform that helps developers build internal apps in minutes. With over 1 million downloads and 15,000 Github stars, Budibase is one of the leading open source platforms in the world. Recently, we launched Budibase 2.0, which allows users to build their own custom components and integrations ๐Ÿš€.

๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ Why Participate?

It's Hacktoberfest! We also wanted to emphasize that Budibase integrations and components are a perfect open source access point. We also think the prizes on offer make for a pretty compelling case to participate in the Budibase Hackathon 2022 ๐Ÿ˜‰.

We're encouraging participants to build Budibase integrations and components for this year's hackathon. We hope you'll walk away with a greater understanding of Budibase and the importance of low-code and extensibility for you and the open source community.
