GitHub Actions Hackathon Winners, Announced!

Back in August, we announced an exciting new challenge on DEV: the GitHub Actions Hackathon!

Participants were asked to create and document workflows that either leveraged existing GitHub Actions or made use of a new, custom action they built. These projects were filed under one of five categories: DIY Deployments, Maintainer Must-Haves, Phone-Friendly, Interesting IoT, or Wacky Wildcards.

You might have thought that the challenge here was in creating and leveraging actions, but the real challenge was for the judges. We were very impressed with the quality, creativity, and technicality of your projects, and selecting just a few Hackathon winners was extremely difficult!

After much deliberation between the DEV and GitHub teams, the final results are in!

Without further delay, let's meet our five grand prize winners and their awesome projects:

DIY Deployments:

Maintainer Must-Haves:

Interesting IoT:

Phone Friendly:

Wacky Wildcards:

All Grand Prize Winners will receive:

  • $1,500 USD gift card or equivalent πŸ€‘
  • $300 USD credit to the DEV Shop 😎
  • GitHub Swag Pack 🎁
  • DEV Sticker Pack ✨
  • DEV β€œActions Hackathon” grand prize winner badge πŸ†

Our Top 10 Runners-Up, in random order!

All runners-up will receive:

  • $250 USD gift card or equivalent πŸ’°
  • $150 USD credit to the DEV Shop 🌈
  • GitHub Swag Pack 😎
  • DEV Sticker Pack πŸ’»
  • DEV β€œActions Hackathon” runner-up badge 🌟

Participants

All participants with a valid project will receive a DEV sticker pack and a DEV "Actions Hackathon" participant profile badge. πŸŽ‰


To everyone who submitted a project for the hackathon, fantastic job. By participating, you have helped to improve the GitHub Actions and open source ecosystem for everyone!

The GitHub team will follow up with each winner via email about their prizes, and the our team will do the same. Reminder that the DEV Team is on a company vacation this week so don't expect to hear from us until next week.

Thanks to all of you ❀️

Omg! Took me almost 12 hours to actually process that I made it to the runner up positionπŸ™ˆ. This was my first every action, took me around 84 commits to fix an error πŸ™ˆ. It was so much fun! Thanks to the DEV Team for this!

Congratulations to everyone who participated! πŸ† Together we make the open-source ecosystem stronger and available to more people from different backgrounds and places.

Some Actions are mindblowing and I'm so glad to've participated, as a person who loves learning by doing this hackathon was the perfect excuse to try something new.

Looking forward more community events, thanks to the DEV.to staff and community <3
