Now is the time to finally solve some of those problems that have been driving the industry crazy, but haven’t made it onto anyone’s individual roadmap. Team up, bring a solution to life, and release it into the wild! You’ll partner with other passionate hackers who are equally excited to bring ideas into the world (starting with GitHub, of course). Results of the Hackathon will also be showcased to the 7000+ attendees of CloudFest. Harness the power of open source and make some magic happen!
The event is mainly targeted at web developers with the following skills:
We are actively striving for a diverse and productive group of participants with different backgrounds, skills, and knowledge to bring about big and positive changes together in the open-source world.
That’s why we also welcome applications from system & infrastructure engineers (DevOps), data scientists, sysadmins, designers, marketers and other specialists with interest in the cloud/hosting industry for our projects to have a good mix in the teams.
We are once again looking out for projects from all over the open-source communities. They will all be not-for-profit, interoperable, and—of course—open-source. Ideally, they are related to the hosting industry, hackable and beneficial for different actors of the industry present during CloudFest.
This year, we’ll be specifically targeting innovative, impactful, and ecologically sustainable open-source projects. To encourage friendly competition between the projects, there will be a jury to determine a winner in each of these three categories.
In addition, we want to actively help to make the projects more goal-oriented. What would be the expected outcome or vision for each project after three days? We are very happy to provide you with an experienced hacker as your mentor:
Feel free to reach out to us for preliminary feedback, consulting or mentorship, if you have a project idea or concrete project that can benefit from the skills of a dev team at CloudFest Hackathon and also fits the open-source ethos: firstname.lastname@example.org
