Here at Dropbase, we're incredibly excited to be one of the sponsors of this years Hack the North, Canada's largest hackathon. The event will be taking place on January 15 through to 17th, and will bring together over 3000 students from across Canada and the world to create a wide variety of software and hardware hacks, all in the span of 36 hours.
Dropbase, part of Y Combinator's W20 cohort, is an end-to-end tool for data processing and preparation. It allows users to streamline their data workflow, turning ordinary CSV and Excel files into live production databases in seconds. The simple drag and drop interface means that both technical and non technical users can utilize the software, reducing the workload of development teams, and improving the speed with which organizations can upload and update their data.
At Hack the North, we're premiering our brand new Dropbase API, and want you to find unique ways to use it! The Dropbase API allows developers to programatically ingest files, apply preset data preparations steps, and load them up to a live database. Combining the Dropbase API with our our REST API service will allow hackers to develop powerful applications quickly. We're looking to you to find innovative ways to send, share, centralize, and/or organize CSV and Excel files.
Team submissions will be done through Devpost, where our product and engineering teams will review all the submissions and determine the winners based on the usefulness and uniqueness of the hack. Feel free to include a short video describing or demonstrating your project.
No challenge would be complete without a prize, so we're offering up a pair of Sony XM4 Noise Cancelling Headphones for each member of the winning team!
Are you up for the challenge? Want to learn more about the product and chat with the cofounders? Check out our Dropbase API Workshop, happening this Wednesday, January 13th at 4:30pm EST
Hope to see you there!
