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!
All Grand Prize Winners will receive:
- $1,500 USD gift card or equivalent 🤑
- $300 USD credit to the DEV Shop 😎
- GitHub Swag Pack 🎁
- DEV Sticker Pack ✨
- DEV “Actions Hackathon” grand prize winner badge 🏆
All runners-up will receive:
- $250 USD gift card or equivalent 💰
- $150 USD credit to the DEV Shop 🌈
- GitHub Swag Pack 😎
- DEV Sticker Pack 💻
- DEV “Actions Hackathon” runner-up badge 🌟
All participants with a valid project will receive a DEV sticker pack and a DEV "Actions Hackathon" participant profile badge. 🎉
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 ❤️
