The 1st ever Metabob Hackathon Event has arrived! 

Join Developers from across the globe as they compete in the first ever Hackathon hosted by Metabob, Inc. Whether traversing the spacetime continuum is new to you, or you're a seasoned vet, welcome onboard the ship! This quarterly hackathon will look to build teams and use Python-based skills/ Machine Learning to achieve outcomes that showcases proficiency in the space as well as an eye for design.

For our competition, using a public application through the Metabob API, teams will collect information about their own/public repositories as well as results for any analyses/information about the codebase. This will allow teams to then use that API dataset in order to build a brand new dev tool that provides functionality for developers. Examples of types of tools could be: visualizations of data, tracking with issue creation, detecting, etc. The goal is about helping developers mine useful insights as to what is happening within their repositories!

Registration is easy, free, and open now! Below you will find a link to our Sign-Up Form. In the meantime, secure your spot and tell your friends, peers, or whoever else may be interested. We have a limited number of spots available, so act before it's too late!
