Two months ago, we announced our Automate for Good virtual hackathon here at Chef.
Participants were tasked to create a project using any of Chef’s products to automate a manual process for good. This could be for the good of the DevOps community or for the good of humankind. There were no categories, no problem statements, no additional guidelines. We went as broad as possible with the requirements because we didn’t want to limit the creative process for participants. That said, we were blown away by the quality of these projects, and picking just 6 winners out of the 20+ submissions was quite the challenge for the judges.
After much deliberation, I’m excited to share that the final results are in!
First off, I’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who participated in our hackathon, and to DevPost for teaming up with us to make it all happen. Whether or not your project made the final list, all participants who submitted a valid project will receive a swag pack which consists of a t-shirt, some cool stickers, and a Badgr badge. We will follow up with each winner about their prizes within the next week.
Without further ado, let’s start with honorable mentions:
In addition to the Submitter Swag Pack, each of these teams will receive an iPad Pro to share amongst themselves.
