Automate for Good

Automate for Good DevOps has evolved over the past few years from being just an alternative approach to getting mainstream. Enterprises, startups, and individuals all love using DevOps practices to simplify their existing workflows and reach peak efficiency. 

This hackathon invites you to showcase the power of DevOps to the world, and make the world a better place while doing it. This challenge is your chance to exhibit your work in the DevOps ecosystem that is positively impacting our world. You can go a step ahead and create new and innovative solutions to improve our lives, too.

Either way, we are an open community, and everyone is welcome to participate. Have a great idea but can’t execute it by yourself? find someone to team up with. Conversely, if you want to join folks in building something cool, we’ll help you out. 

We’re 100% invested in our community, and in building solutions that push us all to do (and be) better. That’s why this hackathon has some fantastic prizes in store for the winners. But that’s not all; everyone participating will stand a chance to win some slick Chef swag! 

Enter the race now!
