The hackathon starts right now! (Friday 12th April at 09:00 am PT) and ends Sunday 21st April at 11:59 pm PT. You could win a set of Apple AirPods along with extremely limited edition Supabase swag and add your name to the Supabase Hackathon Hall of Fame.

For some inspiration check out all the winners from previous hackathons.
