The 2022 Sitecore Hackathon is a free online community driven event organized by Akshay Sura and supported by Sitecore. (Shout out to Pieter, Mark and Tamas).
Teams that have signed up by 6 pm EST February 18, 2022 will have the opportunity to participate in the contest. Eligible teams will have 24 hours — starting Friday March 4th 2022 at 8PM EST and ending Saturday March 5th 2022 at 8PM EST – to build and submit a Sitecore module best implementing the idea for the Hackathon, as determined by our panel of judges. The idea(s) will be announced an hour before the Hackathon starts on Friday March 4th 2022 at 8PM EST.
- 64 Teams participated
- Entries from over 22 countries

Ideas for the hackathon:
– Extend CLI
– Extend MVP Site
All teams are required to submit the following as part of their entry submission no later than the end of the Hackathon on Saturday March 5th 2022 at 8PM EST. The submitted entries shall be based on Sitecore 10.2.
The choice is yours as to how you install Sitecore locally for the Hackathon. There is no requirement on whether you setup with Docker, SIF/SIA, Sifon, SIFless, SIM, or [insert creative approach]. We do however require that the installation steps are simple, few, and require no magic to get your submission working. We encourage you to perform a fresh install and follow your own documentation to ensure that no steps are missed. It would be unwise to try any of these installation methods for the first time the day of the Hackathon because so much can go wrong; do what you know well and invest as much time as you can be creative working on your solution.
For those with prior experience working with Docker, we have provided a “starter kit” in this GitHub repository that will be provided to you (thanks Anders) with a variety of options to speed things up.
Please read carefully — and thoroughly — to ensure you have not missed any of the requirements.
Notwithstanding the fact that value full creativity in your submission, we are going to be judgy here — we are judges, after all. Once your code is pushed to GitHub, we will look for the following with no exceptions:
Cleanliness of code
Adherence to Sitecore best practices (Helix)
The documentation requirements are extremely important. If the judges are unable to get your Hackathon project running then we can’t count it as complete. Here are items we expect to be included which must be pushed to the GitHub repo in the readme:
- Short YouTube video (2-3 minutes) describing your project submission purpose, setup instructions, and how to use it.
- One to two pages of documentation describing your project submission purpose with screenshots of the finished product and installation steps with screenshots where appropriate.

The Amazon gift cards will be emailed to the email addresses on file no later than 10 days after the winning team is announced. If Amazon gift cards are not available in the region, alternate arrangements will be made.
