An Inside Look At Our Christmas Hackathon

Hackathons are always a fun way to test out new product features in real-time and retrieve valuable insights by collaborating as a team. For our recently held Christmas Hackathon, we decided to showcase Opsview Monitor’s distributed architecture by utilizing several Raspberry Pi’s and the results proved to be quite successful. Check out the series of photos below to see how we orchestrated the hackathon while also getting in the holiday spirit!
