Netlify and ClerkDev Hackathon

When building my pet projects, I used to get bored and leave them in between. Hackathons on Hashnode create a competitive environment that hits me every moment to keep building it and take it to the finish line.

We also get constructive reviews on the hackathons' blogs on Hashnode that motivates us to make the product better. Other than that I bought a Fujifilm XT-3 camera from the prize money of my last win.

The Epic Hashnode Writeathon

Participating in 'The Epic Writeathon' was an Epic experience for me because I got to build, write, and read the amazing articles from other participants.

I encourage all newcomers to take part in future Hashnode hackathons.
