Hackathon: Build a space-themed application (and win a MacBook)

Calling all explorers of new worlds to join the first ever Tinybird Hackathon. Your mission is simple: Build a space-themed application using Tinybird (and win some awesome prizes).

Mission briefing
Location: Online
Submission time: Due by 11:59 GMT on October 12th, 2022
Supplies Required: Free Tinybird account & GitHub or GitLab account

Briefing notes
Team Size: This is an individual challenge. You’re on your own, Space Ranger.

Streaming Data: You can use your own data, or pull from this list we’ve compiled. Data must not include any PII.

No Limits: You may create anything as long as it uses Tinybird and is space-themed.

Fresh Code: You must create something from scratch. Submissions may be subject to a code-review to be eligible to win.. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

Submissions: Log your submissions to Star Command on this page. Each submission should include a well-documented GitHub repo, a working demo app, and a 2-min video demonstration of the app.

IP & Ownership: You own your IP and anything you create using Tinybird.

Judging criteria
Submissions will be judged subjectively by a panel of independent developers and data engineers. All of the following factors will be considered when judging whether you’ve completed your mission:

  • Functionality: Does it work?
  • Documentation: Is it easy to understand what you did?
  • Performance: Are queries optimized?
  • Aesthetics: Does it look nice?
  • Gravity: Does it pull us in with wonder and amazement?

What is Tinybird?
Tinybird is a platform that lets you ingest data, shape it with SQL, and publish the results as REST APIs. There aren’t any SDKs or libraries to learn, just use whatever you’re comfortable with to interact with APIs over HTTP.
