Congrats to the Appwrite Hackathon Winners!

A huge congrats to the participants of the Appwrite Hackathon on DEV! For those who didn’t join the fun, this month-long contest challenged our community members to use Appwrite’s self-hosted backend-as-a-service platform to build a new application and tell us all about it in a submission post on DEV.

This hackathon took place from April 12-May 12, 2022 in partnership with our friends at Appwrite. As evidenced by the fantastic submissions we received, you all had a lot of fun with this contest!

After a thorough review period conducted by by the DEV and Appwrite teams, we've selected our Grand Prize winners and Runners-Up across the official categories: Web2 Wizards, Web3 Wunderkinds, Mobile Moguls, and Wacky Wildcards. Please give a round of applause to…

I am speechless.

Second hackathon win in a row on my favorite Dev Community 😍 For someone who started his self-taught coding journey not long ago, Dev.to hackathons allowed me to gain confidence and motivated me to push myself beyond my limits to become a better developer.

I'm so thankful and grateful for @thepracticaldev and Appwrite for gifting us the opportunity to have such amazing experience.

I'm out of words really, and I can't find the right words to express how happy and proud I feel right now ❤️ Congratulations to all the winners 🥳 And all contributors should be extremely proud of what they accomplished with Appwrite in such short time.

Hey @graciegregory , The Adam Blockchain Computer (Adam BC) was coded before this Hackathon started. The next time you should have been clearer about reuse any project that you are working on to participate on the event.
github.com/TheAdamBC/AdamBC/commit...

Maybe dev.to/neelds/datacv-a-better-way-... deserves the award in the category

BTW, How do we (Me and the rest of the team) redeem the AppWrite Tshirt?
