Any Redis or Hackathon Questions?

Hello hackers,

It's the last weekend of hacking before your Hackathon submissions are due. If you have trouble getting started with Redis, please ask your question in our new Redis Forum here: 

Remember the rules: 

1) Your app must demonstrate how Redis can be used ‘Beyond Cache’ and must use one or both of these Redis features:

  • Event-driven architectures – Your application uses Redis Streams, Pub/Sub, and/or Queues 


2) The Judges will score your submission using the following equally weighted criteria:

  • Quality of the Idea (Includes creativity and originality of the idea) 
  • Design (Includes the user experience and visual design of the idea)
  • Technical Implementation (includes how well the idea was executed by the developer)

For more details, visit:


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the Redis Forum.

Happy Hacking!
