Rails Hackathon 2022 Winners
We had 84 teams and 25 submitted entries in 2022, our inaugural year! We consider that a smashing success for our very first time and hope you all enjoyed it. There were some wonderful entries this year. Great work and a huge thank you to everyone who participated!
Here's a look at the top entries for 2022.
Typefighters by Team Rubades won this year's Judge's Favorite award. It's a realtime game where you try and type sentences faster than your opponent. They used lots of Hotwire features to run animations and broadcast the game state in realtime. It is a really fun entry.
Best Solo / Community Favorite
Checkpoint Rails won both the Best Solo and Community Favorite awards. It's an excellent project aiming to help Rails developers debug what happens during a request. It uses TracePoint and Rails's Instrumentation to display a graph of method calls during a Rails request. And it was all built by Jim Jones on his own over 48 hours!
Hot Table won the Most Phlex-ible award. Their team implemented a full-featured Airtable clone with Hotwire and used Phlex components in a weekend. It was the most complete and polished entry of the whole Hackathon. Tremendous work!
Kent Believe He Finished
Always a jokester, our beloved Kent submitted Kentstagram so we thought we'd come up with a Kentatstic award for him: the Kent Believe He Finished award. 😜
