Frequently asked questions

  • Aug 1, 2023:  Hackathon Begins
  • Aug 31, 2023 12 PM PST - PR Submission Deadline
  • Sep 18, 2023 Winners will be announced 
How are winners selected?

Winners are determined by the following

  • Connectors: Most merged PRs 
  • Videos Tutorials: Most views on YouTube 
  • Written Tutorials: Most upvotes on GitHub Discussions
What if I submit multiple videos or tutorials?

You’re more than welcome to submit multiple videos or tutorials! However, please note that we won’t be combining the views or upvotes from your various submissions. The winners will be determined by the individual videos or tutorials that garner the most views or upvotes, not the aggregate numbers from multiple entries. 

Which views will be considered for the hackathon?

To maintain fairness in the competition, we will only count the views generated from videos posted on your personal YouTube channel. 

Can two or more people team up to work on the same project?

Absolutely! Forming a team with friends to work on a project is allowed. However, only one person can submit the project. If your team ends up winning the prize, the prize will be awarded to the individual who submitted the project. 

How to film a video tutorial?

We recommend QuickTime Player on your Mac or Streamlabs for screen recording due to its quality output. Please avoid using Loom as it can produce pixelated videos. (Watch this video on how to use Streamlabs OBS).

How will winners be contacted?

Winners of the hackathon will be contacted via email. We will use the email address that you provided when submitting your project. Winners will also be announced in the Airbyte Newsletter, so make sure to sign up :).

How will the payouts be processed?

Payouts will be processed via PayPal.

Hackathon Best Practices

  • Assess the complexity of the connectors you want to migrate and plan accordingly.
  • Explain in your written tutorial or video why and how you used Airbyte
  • Feel free to create a comprehensive written tutorial on the connector you’re migrating. It’s better to provide a thorough explanation of your project.
  • Collaboration with other people can speed up the development process and improve the final product.
  • Don't hesitate to ask questions or share ideas in our Slack channel.
  • Make sure to test your work before submission.
