Hackathon 2023


Join us for our first authentik hackathon!

Everyone welcome; we will work on code, docs, and anything else that looks interesting and challenging.

Moderators will be available for most US and European hours, so if during the multi-day event, participants have questions or a PR needs a technical review, we are here for you.

More details will be added soon about the exact daily timeframes, for both European-based and US-based participants.

Prizes? Why, Yes! We've got a total prize pool of $5000 and a bunch of cool authentik-branded socks, food certificates, and indubitably GitHub fame.


July 26-30, 2023


Online, in our GitHub repo, using Discord for conversations, questions, and video calls.

Registration form

Use the Hackathon 2023 Registration Form to let us know that you'll join us!

If you know what you and/or your team want to work on, you can open an Issue using our template for all hackathon Issues at any time (why not now?) and add the hackathon label. Then, when you register, enter the Issue number that you opened on your registration form. This way, on Kickoff Day we can easily match particpants with their Issue of interest.


  • Wednesday, July 26th: Kickoff, voting for topics to work on, teams formed, participants select the Issue/team they are going to work on, and get their environment set up. After the online kickoff, you can start your work at any time.
