Are you a developer with a passion for DevOps and cloud-native technologies? Then we have the perfect challenge for you! Join us for the Bunnyshell Stack Hackathon, where you can showcase your software engineering prowess and build reusable cloud environment templates for your favourite app stacks and open source projects.

Bunnyshell is an Environment as a Service (EaaS) platform that helps developers to deploy their apps on ephemeral environments for development, testing, and preview. It's like a playground where you can code, test, and preview your work in the cloud without the usual hassles. This simplifies the process of creating and managing cloud environments and pipelines and enables developers to test and get feedback faster their work, directly on a live setup. 

Bring your hacker skills and contribute for a chance to win awesome prizes and get your favourite dev technologies and open source projects one step closer to the cloud!
