Moments from Inferless Hackathon
Apr 12, 2023
In the heart of Inferless, there's a pulsating energy that comes alive during our internal team hackathons. It's more than just coding; it’s about innovating and pushing boundaries together. These events are a cornerstone of our culture, bringing everyone together, build small teams and compete ( in a fun way) 😃
Hackathon Theme : Turbocharging the Developer Experience
This time, our hackathon was laser-focused on supercharging the developer experience of our platform. Since launching in private beta, we've witnessed an exhilarating surge in user retention and platform usage. Our users aren't just deploying models at a production level; they're transitioning to our platform, choosing us over legacy giants and emerging startups alike.
The Feedback-Inspired Challenge
Our platform's strengths – smooth autoscaling, rock-solid API reliability, and consistent cold starts – have undoubtedly captivated our early adopters. However, we've also listened to their candid feedback. Let's face it: sometimes, our developer experience can be a bit frustrating. So, with a blend of determination and excitement, we embarked on a two-day hackathon marathon. We set the goal - to tackle and refine 12 critical enhancements and feature requests. An ambitious undertaking, but then, that's what we thrive on!
The anticipation of unveiling these new features to our users is palpable. We're confident they'll feel a sense of pride in our advancements.
As we gear up to wrap up the year, I can't help but reflect on the power of a small, dedicated team. The amount we've accomplished together is astounding. And what better way to celebrate this than our upcoming annual offsite.
Stay tuned, and here's to many more hackathons and breakthroughs at Inferless!
