We're hosting a Hackathon. Are you up for the challenge?

Join BetterCloud for a fun, FREE, and publicly open hackathon this March! Participating teams will be racing to detect suspicious activity within a billion Kafka messages. Prizes totalling $5000 will be given out to the top teams in each category.  We'll provide food, drink and an even playing field, with each team receiving their own Cloud-based VM. Bring your own team or join one of our power players at this special event!

Please have each member of your team RSVP individually. We ask that teams have no more than 5 members.

On Friday night we will meet at the BetterCloud office for a happy hour and then head over to Atlanta Tech Village to start the competiton.


We only ask that our participants are 21 or older, anyone is welcome!
