Well, we certainly are pooped from this past weekend’s #CoronaHackathon festivities, but we must say it was totally worth it! The 37 apps (20 from the floor, 17 from virtual attendees worldwide) we saw made in less than 12 hours completely floored us. All in all, witnessing the day’s events proved to us yet again that we have the best developers (that’s you!) on the planet!
Of course, this isn’t rec league soccer… So, let’s get to the winners!
1.) Gold Digger by Greg and Chris
This one was especially impressve given its animation, graphics, and solid gameplay — all created during the 12-hour hackathon span!
This was our other remote winner of the night — and he just happened to take the GRAND PRIZE! A classic Galaga-style game with a nifty color-changing twist. The judges couldn’t put it down in the Decision Room!
All in all, we had a friggin’ blast seeing what you guys created, and honestly wished we had made more award categories to recognize all the ones we liked. Some hackathons last an entire weekend or, at least, 24 hours — but ours was barely 12 hours and we saw some tremendous talent flexed even with such a small timeframe!
So… When do you think we should have the next #CoronaHackathon? 😉
