Calling all the APAC Hackers!
This weekend we would love for you to focus on health and wellness. Whether it's building something for your fitness regime or your mental well-being, this is the hackathon for you to bring your creative ideas to life. Come join us at HackFit for some exciting mini-events, workshops, and live streams.
While we'd love to have you build something on the theme, our themes are only here for inspiration. As always, build whatever you'd like and focus on having fun!
If you're from the NA/EU region, we'd love for you to join another one of our amazing hackathons which are more time-friendly for your region: CivicHacks

Best Use of Velo by Wix
Velo by Wix cuts down your development without sacrificing on functionality! With Velo, all the tools you need are conveniently located in one platform! Build your hackathon project with Velo by Wix for a chance to win Wacom Drawing Tablets for you and each of your teammates.
Best Use of Appwrite
Building a full-stack application can be time consuming, especially if you’re more of a frontend developer or lack experience with things like databases or authentication. At hackathons you want to make every minute count, which is why Appwrite is the missing ingredient to your recipe for a successful hack. With all the core backend functionalities you need already pre built and ready for customization, all you’ll need to do is make an API call to take advantage of an Appwrite database, media storage, user auth, and even custom compute functions. Use Appwrite in your hack this weekend for a chance to take home some Fitbits for you and your team.
Best Sustainability Hack sponsored by Avanade
Avanade has put sustainable tech at the forefront of their ongoing mission! Sustainability is about conserving an ecological balance by avoiding depletion of natural resources and focusing efforts to reduce and improve the environmental impact of technology, processes, and operations on our planet and society. For your hackathon project, we want you to make a genuine human impact using your ingenuity to address sustainability through an innovative use of technology. Demonstrate how you can create a more sustainable future and help the environment. As an added bonus, the team with the best sustainability hack will be rewarded with awesome lego sets!
