FindCollabs Hackathon Winners: Kitspace and Rivaly
FindCollabs is a platform for finding collaborators and building projects. Three months ago we had our first hackathon, with lots of projects being created and collaborated on. In an earlier episode, we showcased the first place winner ARhythm.
Today’s show features two more interviews with winners from the first FindCollabs hackathon. Kitspace is an open source hardware registry, and Rivaly is an app for informal ranked leagues, such as ping pong games at work, or board game clubs among your friends.
The second FindCollabs hackathon is going on today. Check it out by going to findcollabs.com/open.
- FindCollabs is a place to find collaborators and build projects. FindCollabs is the company I am building, and we are having an online hackathon with $2500 in prizes. If you are working on a project, or you are looking for other programmers to build a project or start a company with, check out FindCollabs. I’ve been interviewing people from some of these projects on the FindCollabs podcast, so if you want to learn more about the community you can hear that podcast.
