    FutureHack
    FutureHack 2021

    A 24-hour virtual hackathon where developers, engineers, and practitioners compete to create their most kick-ass project. To broaden the reach, FutureHack will have multiple tracks of competition targeted at three personas. A ‘no-code’ track for non-engineering attendees, ‘Build on New Relic’ for attendees skilled with the New Relic ecosystem, and a ‘Hack for Good’ track where you can build whatever you want with a ‘good for the community’ focus. Relics and sponsor engineers will be available as support through Slack and Zoom rooms. We can have a Livestream of tips and tricks for increased engagement and invite each team to join for 15-20 minutes to talk about their projects and the stacks they’ve decided to use.
