Kubernets Edu Hack Day 2019

Kubernets Inc together with MLH and Microsoft hosted its first ever one day Hackathon “Kubernets Edu Hack Day 2019” to support hackers all over the world in this celebration of learning, building, and sharing!

Local Hack Day: Build is a global hack day that enables community to get first-hand experience bringing their ideas to life participating in a hackathon. Over the course of 12 hours, attendees from Uganda, Beni, Bunia DRC used hardware, software, and powerful Microsoft Azure cloud services to build everything from websites to robots to mobile apps and more. In 2018, Local Hack Day: Build brought out more than 11,000 participants across 52 countries and 333 cities around the world and this year we are proud to Join MLH and Microsoft in supporting Hackers around the world.

We had all skill levels, from beginners to the most veteran developers.100 hackers who participated and joined others  across hundreds of locations support one another in learning new skills and building positive and inclusive communities.
