Inrupt Solid Hackathon

April 10–April 28, 2023

Join us for a virtual Solid Hackathon

Solid is more than just a protocol, a concept, or a technology. Solid is a movement, growing every day with exciting new deployments going live around the world. It is the vital piece of the third layer of the web, something that was missing in 1989 but that we now have.

As part of Inrupt’s commitment to empower developers everywhere to do their best work and build amazing new experiences, we're excited to present our second hackathon. If you’re interested in building new Solid experiences for your users, kickstart your new app idea by participating in the Inrupt hackathon alongside a great community of developers.

The hackathon presents developers with the opportunity to try out Inrupt's new enterprise-grade client libraries for Java application development. However, participants are welcome to use our JavaScript or Java libraries to create their project.

The first-place team will be awarded $2500, and the second-place team will receive $500. Both teams will have the opportunity to present their projects on an upcoming Solid World.
