Holiday Hackathon

In the past year, we've had a ton of fun hosting a number of hackathons and giving away cash prizes with premium swag to our community of Xataflies. That is why we're beyond excited to announce the second annual Xata Holiday Hackathon 🎉

Holiday Hackathon

It's the holiday season, and that means work is starting to wind down a bit. There's more time for family and friends. If you're fortunate (and brave) enough to travel during the holidays, maybe even a vacation. But with all that time on your hands, there's a nagging feeling in the back of your mind. You have had a million dollar idea that you've been wanting to build all year. Maybe you already bought the domain and have been sitting on it just waiting for the time to build.

We're here to tell you that now's your chance. With Xata Holiday Hackathon, you can turn that side project into a side hustle and win up to $500 for an app built on top of Xata. The best part? If it takes off, you can easily take that prototype to production scale with our generous free tier in the new year. Take advantage of features like file attachments, our LangChain integrations and full-text search to scratch that itch and build the next big thing.


Excited? We are too! Here are the rules ✅

  • Xata engineers will vote to select the winners of the Holiday Hackathon
  • The top 5 entries will receive $500 each
  • The top 10 entries will receive limited-edition swag
  • All entries must be submitted by January 15, 2024
  • You can submit more than one entry, however, only one app participant will be eligible for a prize
  • Ensure your app's code is publicly available, to showcase your use of Xata
  • Submissions for this hackathon must be original and unique to this challenge; entries used in previous hackathons are not permitted or eligible

How to submit your entry

After you've built your app, submit your entry using the form here.

We will need:

  • Your name and email
  • A link to the application URL
  • A link to the application repository
  • Any social profiles you'd like to receive shout outs in
