Announcing our first hackathon on The Relicans community, in partnership with DEV — Hack the Planet 🎉
Organizers at New Relic have partnered up with DEV to bring you a month-long software development challenge, right here on The Relicans community.
Your mission? To build an application that will help combat climate change using New Relic’s observability tools. We’ll be picking two tiers of winners across three categories to earn awesome prize packs.
As a provider of software observability tools, New Relic helps developers build applications that are more efficient, organized, and easier to analyze. We are committed to doing everything in our power to use these tools to help address the mounting threat of climate change.
But we can’t do it alone: Just as the planet can’t be protected without universal commitment, New Relic is nothing without users like you.
What else? Prizes 🤑 While the motivation of this contest is to encourage you to build amazing apps that have the power to fight the negative effects of climate change, we have to mention the amazing suite of prizes you stand to win. We’re awarding three grand prize winners and 10 runners-up $10,000 in total cash prizes and lots of other stuff, too including credits to the DEV Shop eco-friendly swag from New Relic, and a tree planted in your name.
