Follow Friday: Hackathon Edition (9 December 2022)

Happy Friday, friends! πŸŽ‰ Follow Friday is your weekly opportunity to shout out fellow DEV Community members doing awesome work. Check out the comments and follow someone new!

We just finished our latest MongoDB #AtlasHackathon22 on DEV, and we're so excited to review your submissions! ✨

In fact, one of the coolest things about the DEV Community (imho) is how many members participate in hackathons and coding contests. It's such a great opportunity to get creative, learn new tools, and flex your skills for prizes.

So, devs: who are your favorite DEV Community hackathoners? They can be first-time submitters or multi-contest winners β€” and, yes, you're allowed to tag yourself!!

Formatting tip: to populate a card with a follow button, use the liquid tag syntax {% embed https://... %} and insert the URL of your favorite author's profile.

Join in on the #FollowFriday fun by @mentioning your favorite person to follow for amazing hackathon submissions (and letting us know why you love their posts!) ‡️

The last hackathon I participated in was the Deepgram hackathon (#hackwithdg), I've been a bit off lately "^^

I loved the idea of one of the winners, @arndom, very little proposals were as good as this, in my opinion: AudioSign, to convert speech into animated sign language.

And... as you say, I will tag myself hehehe
I participated with three different submissions in the same hackathon: a generator of fully interactive scripts from recorded audio, a search engine for audio files integrated with the Telegram API and the implementation proposal of a group dynamics analyzer.
The two first got a functional demo, so I'm really proud of it!

Glad you enjoyed the article, Miguel, had a lot of fun writing it. I also took a look at Scripter, it's a pretty nice concept, as someone that has tried to learn languages and failed, the interactive functionality could be a more engaging way to learn a language.

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
