2022/10/15 - SpawnFest - online BEAM hackathon

Hello, community.

SpawnFest is back for another edition (2022), this year on Oct 15 & 16.

SpawnFest is an annual 48 hour online software development contest in which teams from around the world get exactly one weekend to create the best BEAM-based applications they can. Participation in SpawnFest is 100% Free of Charge, and there’s prizes to be won (just check out what we gave away last year).

At https://spawnfest.org/ you can get a bit more information about the competition (including the rules, judge panel, sponsors and prizes - we’ll keep adding these) as well as register for participation.

Hope to see you there.
