Welcome to

D R I A T _

All your hack are belong to us.

This is an open source project board designed for splendid collaboration. On this site we collect and showcase all projects from a hackathon event in one place. The name is an amalgam of Driven By Data: we started this platform to help hackathon teams sustain their efforts, streamline things for the organisers, and let everyone focus on driving their ideas forward instead of managing IT.


On the front page you can see the upcoming event, as well as any previous events. A short description is followed by a link to the event home page, as well as a countdown of time remaining until the start or finish (if already started) of the hackathon.

The Projects, Challenges and Resources are shown on the event home page. Here you can learn about topics, datasets, and any other information the organisers have provided. Once the event has started, and you have formed a team, you can login and Share project


When documenting an idea or project, you can use Markdown formatting in the Description. It is also possible to publish your documentation in an open source community site. If you host your project on GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket, and online document editors including Etherpad Lite, Google Docs (File > Publish > Link), DokuWiki (experimental support), you can quickly and easily sync the details here by entering an Autofill link and enabling "auto-update". You will then find a Sync button on your project page for quickly pulling in changes.

After you create a project, you can customise the icon, color and image. You will also be able to set your project status. By updating your Progress, you can communicate how far along you are in development, and hackathon participants and organisers can better channel their efforts to support you through the project dashboard. Your team members can click the Join button at the top of your project page to link their profile and make changes.

Need more help? Get in touch with the organising team using the Community links, or raise a GitHub issue.

For organisers

All of the content on the site, including presentation of the header, can be edited by the site administrator in the Admin menu linked in the header if you have access: from where you can edit general details under Events, publish Categories, and edit or sync Projects and Challenges (which are either a Category, or just a project in challenge status).

If you would like to use this platform for your event, contact the organisers of the events listed here and they should be able to help you - or just fork the open source project and set it up to your liking:
