Calling on creative problem solvers to address today’s biggest challenges using Quick Base’s low-code platform.

From global pandemics to societal unrest to the imperatives of digitization, we are in a time that is primed for change. Organizations are being forced to adapt and flex, finding creative ways to address new and ever-changing problems.   

Meeting these demands requires the right technology and the right people. That’s where Quick Base comes in. The power of our low-code platform lies not only in its robust technical capabilities but in the diversity of our users.   

We want YOU to think big and harness the endless potential of our platform to address a problem you care about – in your job, your community, or the world at large. 

The Quick Base Virtual Hackathon is asking you to “wow” us: 

  • By addressing real problems that exist right now. We’ve provided some inspirational themes - Connection, Responsiveness, Equity, and Security - to kickstart your brainstorming. See the Inspiration tab for more details.
  • Through imaginative use of our most powerful features. What can you do with our in-memory database, automations, integrations, APIs, code pages, and formulas?   

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
