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.

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 :smile:
