Hackathon Bot

A simple bot for managing an online hackathon over Discord. All data is persisted in a Redis instance to ensure maximum efficiency give the small amount of data.

The bot was created for Silicon Valley Hacks which was run by a friend and I in late April 2020. It contained features for moderation, team management, and requesting help from mentors. The hackathon itself was quite successful: we had roughly 300 participants from around the world with 60 unique submissions.
