This weekend we’re heading to The University of Maryland to sponsor Bitcamp, the University’s annual hackathon. An estimated 1,200 participants ranging from high school seniors to college students will be in attendance. They’ll have 36 hours to delve into their curiosities, learn something new, and build something awesome. The SparkPost Developer Relations team will be there to help mentor and incentivize the use of the SparkPost API. We’ll be awarding one lucky team with $500 in Visa gift cards for winning our “Build Something Awesome using the SparkPost API” challenge.

Check out our hackathon page for more information on use cases and other resources to assist you in the challenge. Previous hackathon projects have included sending double blind anonymous emails, sending encrypted emails, notifying customers of food truck orders, and displaying and storing email event data. It’s amazing to see what creative solutions come out of each hackathon.

Stop by our booth and pick up some one-of-a kind SparkPost swag made especially for Bitcamp. You can learn how you might be able to leverage the SparkPost API in your project. Our engineers will be around all weekend, and can help get you setup with a free SparkPost account. They’ll also be able to answer any questions around our Inbound Relay, Transactional Sending, and Data Analytics.

Be sure to enter our raffle for a Jackery Giant+. And don’t forget to swing by on Saturday night to refuel with slushies, served in our limited edition SparkPost cups!

Check out our recap of this year’s BrickHack Hackathon. Unable to make it to Bitcamp? We’ll be at Twilio’s Signal Conference in May and The Kansas City Developer Conference in June. No matter where you are, you can also join us in building something awesome on our community Slack channel, or follow us on Twitter.

Looking forward to building something awesome with you.
