Reach for the Clouds at DigitalOcean’s Cloud Hack

The world’s second largest Cloud hosting service, DigitalOcean, is opening offices in India. And they obviously want to announce their arrival with a bang! DigitalOcean was founded in 2011 and is currently headquartered in New York. Between 2011 and 2016, the company has already conquered many heights. Their achievements include being one of the first Cloud hosting organisations to offer customers access to SSD-based virtual machines. It has been recognised, the world over, as one of the simplest yet efficient Cloud platform that’s aimed at software developers. Also, DigitalOcean has managed to expand to countries like the UK, Canada, Singapore, and The Netherlands.

In February 2016, the company announced that it would also open shop in Bangalore, India. And as they kickstart operations, they want to host a very special hackathon. The 24-hour hack is going to be an out-and-out fun event that is open to ALL developers, designers … pretty much anyone! Isn’t that cool? Essentially “Build the Next Big Thing on Digital Ocean!” You will spend the day crafting products that make your life or the lives of the people around easier. After which, you will upload you amazing new application to the DigitalOcean Cloud.

So, come June 18, 2016, you can walk into DigitalOcean’s brand new offices in Koramangala and grab your spot. But before that, you’ll need to apply here. Once your application is processed, you’ll be invited to the hack that will last until the morning of June 19, 2016. The task on the big day is to create awe-inspiring, seamless products that are loved by the folks at DigitalOcean. Remember, while this may not be a hiring activity, it is still a massive networking opportunity. If you play your cards right, you never what opportunities the future will bring.

The Cloud Hack is a team challenge and we welcome teams of 2-5 people to participate in the challenge. If you are having trouble finding a teammate, just give us a shout-out and we’ll help you find a partner-in-crime for the day. All you need to bring to the venue is your laptop and a charger. We’ll provide the delicious food that you need to keep charging towards the finish line.

Best part is, all participants will get DigitalOcean credits! The idea is to have a smashing time and return with a bag overflowing with goodies and complimentary Cloud Credits from DigitalOcean.

If you are ready to swim the high seas and conquer the vast DigitalOcean, then, we recommend that you apply here. All the details of the Cloud Hack have been included in the same link.
