Supabase Hacktoberfest Hackathon 2021

We were absolutely blown away by all the amazing projects you built during our first Supabase Hackathon, that we were looking for an excuse to run our next virtual open-source hackathon, and we found it in the upcoming Hacktoberfest.

Here's the plan

  • On Friday Oct 1st at 08:00am PT we're kicking things off with our Hacktoberfest Discord Hangout. Join us in the #hackathon channel on our Discord server:
  • Then you have 10 days to build a new open-source project with Supabase or contribute to one of our supabase-community projects that have the hacktoberfest topic.
  • It can be whatever you want - a project, mobile app, tool, library, anything
  • Enter as an individual, or as a team of up to 5 people
  • Submission deadline is Sunday Oct 10th at 11:59pm PT
  • Besides earning your Hacktoberfest shirt, you can win some extremely limited edition Supabase swag ✨ (see here what folks won last time!)



  • Friday Oct 1st at 08:00am PT: Opening Ceremony in the #hackathon channel on Discord.
  • Build your project during the next 10 days and hang out with the community on Discord.
  • Sunday Oct 10th at 11:59pm PT: Submission deadline
  • Judges Deliberate (Monday)
  • We'll be contacting and announcing the winners on Twitter throughout the week after.
