There are three ways to submit:
In case you’d like to get some guidance on successful submission, check out these four tips on how to win a virtual hackathon. Bear in mind that we want to see what you’ve developed and how you’ve developed it using Five. Screenshots, videos, or code samples are a big plus!
No! It’s free to participate. The only thing you have to do is download Five, for free, onto your computer to start building.
Submissions will be judged based on three criteria:
Five is an online database application builder. To get inspired, check out this video of our Product Advocate Pranoy building a simple CRUD application on top of Five.
This video is obviously just a quick glimpse into the workings of Five. Any kind of multi-user web application for storing, retrieving, visualizing, or processing data can be built with Five. Beyond CRUD applications, you can build pretty much anything and we are looking forward to seeing your ideas!
We will release an official kick-off video on May 5th (or the 5th of the 5th. We love our Fives), that covers everything you need to know to participate in the virtual hackathon. To watch the video, go to our official hackathon website!
Also, make sure to follow us on Twitter to get regular updates about the hackathon!
This is the only hackathon we are organizing in 2023 – so far!
So, ask yourself: If you had one shot or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted, in one moment, would you capture it or just let it slip? 🎶
Five is a low-code development environment that helps software developers build and deploy custom online database applications faster. Using Five, developers can rapidly build release-ready software by using Five’s prebuilt features, such as a hosted MySQL database, authentication, or access control.
To get started, download Five for free from our website.
We also encourage you to watch our demo video:
