🌐 Be Part of Something Bigger

This hackathon transcends prizes and competitions. It’s about learning, growing, connecting, and being part of the open-source ecosystem that drives change. A lot of the connector improvements are about migrating connectors to low-code / no-code. This makes all those connectors more easily maintainable, customizable, and easier to improve, (as any improvement to the no-code connector builder will improve all the no-code/low-code connectors). What great leverage!

🎉 Your Next Step Awaits

You're on the brink of something extraordinary! Feel the excitement, envision the innovation, and grasp the opportunity to be part of a global movement.
