Meet the HashiCorp Partner Hackstravaganza Winners

See the results of HashiCorp’s virtual partner hackathon held in the Asia-Pacific region.

Back in November, we announced the HashiCorp Partner Hackstravaganza, a virtual hackathon designed to let the HashiCorp partner community in the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region show off their creativity and learn something new about HashiCorp tools. Our APJ partners came together to compete for $6,000 USD in prizes, plus limited edition HashiCorp swag.

Today, we are excited to share the winning presentations and demonstrations. The hackathon was a great way for us to engage our partners and learn new tips and tricks relevant to the local community — and we think all the entries were fantastic!

»3rd Place: Niveus Solutions — Team Niveus

Team Niveus: Ankit Awal, Rohan Shetty, Prathiksha Kamath, Mahammad Fayiz, Bhavish Kumar

The third-place winner, earning $1,000 USD, was Team Niveus from Niveus Solutions, a newly onboarded HashiCorp partner based in India.

Bullet points for enforcing best practices with GCP Landing Zone & Terraform

Team Niveus kicked off its presentation by going through how to enforce best practices with GCP Landing Zone and HashiCorp Terraform (see screenshot above). Although this came at the start of the build, the judges were excited to see where it would lead and how HashiCorp Terraform Cloud features like Sentinel would add security into the build process. It was a great example of using the concept of a landing zone to create a customer-focused repeatable pattern. Team Niveus presented a clear customer-value-based outcome proving that this was a well thought out customer-first approach. Excellent job!

»Second Place: Servian — Reena’s Heroes

Reena’s Heroes: Dylan Graham, Harsha Johncy, Tristan Morgan, Gabe Wong, Isaac Reichman, Daniel Brown

Team Reena’s Heroes from Servian grabbed second place, worth $1,500 USD.

This was a great demonstration of the entire HashiCorp stack working together. Using HashiCorp Vault with HashiCorp Nomad to deliver a secure workflow for a customer showed the depth of knowledge that we have come to expect from the Servian team. The ability to deliver this complex type of demonstration so quickly deeply impressed the judges.

»First Place: AspireNXT — Team Rebels

Team Rebels: Anirudh Marc, Akanksha Bhatt, Bhagyashree Shelke, Chandrashekhar M

The grand prize winner was Team Rebels, from AspireNXT, which walked away with $3,500 USD. Congratulations!

AspireNXT won over the judges with a complete, fully realized presentation. It started strong, referencing HashiCorp’s own Cloud Operating Model (COM) and then led into a clear value proposition for Terraform and a clearly defined positive outcome solving a key problem for the customer. The presentation wrapped up with a multi-product demo that linked back to the opening narrative showing the practical implementation of the COM, Terraform, and Vault delivered the benefits of automation for the customer.
