Tips and Ideas for DigitalOcean Hackathon

So, recently DigitalOcean App Platform Hackathon was just announced on Dev.

I thought I'd put together this list of things of which I think will be helpful resources for anybody partaking in this.

Background

From 10 December 2020, to 10 January 2021, DigitalOcean App Platform Hackathon will be going on. You'll have a chance to win some cool prizes for building an application using DigitalOcean's new App Platform.

There are for categories, which are

  • Personal Site/Portfolio
  • Build an application related to mental health.
  • Build something that could become commercial and earn big bucks
  • Build a wacky app that doesn't fit into any of the categories above.

You can view the full post with the rules of the Hackathon and other useful info here

Are you going to be participating in the Hackathon? I wished I could, though due to the minimum age requirement being 18+, I can't 🙁

If you found any inspiration from this, do let me know! I'd be glad to discuss what you all are building 😄
