We're excited to share that we're teaming up with our friends at Xata, Clerk, and Prisma to celebrate summer with a two-week hackathon ๐ŸŽ‰

Join in, build a fun project, and win cash and swag prizes!

๐Ÿ“ Hackathon details

Over the past year, we've noticed more and more users building with the PXCI stack. This stack enables you to quickly build reliable serverless applications that scale combining best tools for the job:

  • Xata, a database with with their managed PostgreSQL,
  • Prisma with their battle-tested ORM and database management tooling,
  • Clerk, which is already a standard and trusted tool for identity and authentication,
  • and (yours truly) Inngest.

We are all teaming up now to host a hackathon for our joint community. Here are the details:

  • Teams: solo or in a team of two.
  • Duration: July 5 - July 17, 2024.
  • Format: Individual or 2-person teams.
  • Requirements: Use the free tier of the full stack (Xata, Clerk, Inngest, Prisma) to create an app.
  • Submission requirements: Your code must be public and can't be a recycled project.
  • Submission deadline: July 17, 2024 (midnight local time).

โžก๏ธ We have prepared a PCXI starter project for you so you can start building right away!
