We’re excited to invite you to join our summer hackathon in collaboration with our friends at Prisma, Clerk and Inngest!

Over the past year, we’ve noticed that many of our customers were using the PXCI (Prisma, Xata, Clerk and Inngest) stack and thought it would be fun to host a hackathon for our joint community. As part of our upcoming Xata Launch Week in July 2024, we’re bringing you a two-week coding challenge like no other. Whether you're a solo developer or part of a duo, this is your chance to showcase your creative skills, collaborate with a vibrant community, and win fantastic prizes!
