JetBrains 8th Annual Hackathon: Home Edition
It is that time of year again! 48 hours of limitless freedom to play, create, and test out ideas that may go nowhere – or that might just change the world. Following the spirit of Hackathons, this year, we adapted and evolved, and borne our first JetBrains Hackathon: Home Edition, something it turns out that not many of our community members have tried. Our Hackathons bring together people that may not have otherwise cooperated before. Working in 10 cities across 7 countries with time zones as much as 5 hours’ difference, 48 teams made up of 155 participants set out to bring their projects to life.

After a long period of brainstorming, JetBrains Quest was born. JetBrains Quest was a series of puzzles spread throughout different JetBrains pages and products. The game consisted of 3 Quests, with 4-6 puzzles to solve per quest. The first quest was relatively easy to give people a chance to figure out what to expect wi
