We’re launching the first-ever Baserow Challenge! The challenge is to create a new Baserow app that increases productivity while using the Baserow API. This is a great opportunity to showcase your development skills, creativity, and have fun while building with Baserow. Build it, and you could win a Sony PlayStation 5! :exploding_head:

:exclamation: If you haven’t yet, register now: Baserow Developer Challenge (REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED).

Getting started

Check this thread where we shared the app ideas and problem statements related to productivity. This way, you can decide what to build if you’re not sure about any ideas. Moreover, we shared a live coding session on how to use the Baserow API as a backend for an application. It will help you get started smoothly!

Challenge details

You will have 17 days to create a new application using Baserow as a backend:

  • The challenge starts at 09:00 am CET on Thursday, February 22nd, 2024.
  • Submit your work by 11:59 pm CET on Sunday, March 10th, 2024.
  • Develop anything you want—a project, app, tool, extension, integration, or plugin—as long as it’s created around the Baserow API (Baserow is used as the backend), and makes some type of workflow more productive.

Additional rules

The winner will write a blog post detailing the process of creating the app. This post will be published on the Baserow blog, with full credit to the winner.

Are we allowed to use tkinter, as a front end to the BaseRow backend?

It seems if tkinter is not a low-code or drag and drop tool for the frontend, then you can use it

Hey @Asakor, of course, you can use it :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks, @cameronpak. We can’t wait to see your app :heart_eyes:

Hey @cameronpak, the app looks great, and I really like the clean UI. :heart_eyes:

At first, I wasn’t sure if this app was related to our productivity theme, but meditation does increase productivity in some ways, so I think it counts. Don’t forget to submit your app via this form by the 10th of March. :pray:
