As a bonus, Hedgehog is sponsoring prizes for this years Hackathon. Category winners will each receive FREE licenses for all three Hedgehog tools!

Here is a message from Hedgehog:

  • TDS is globally accepted by individuals to enterprise teams for Sitecore development and deployment methods. It reduces deployment time by allowing developers to leverage a continuous integration or automated deployment strategy while seamlessly merging changes.
  • Razl allows developers to have a complete side by side comparison between two Sitecore databases; highlighting features that are missing or not up to date. Razl also gives developers the ability to simply move the item from one database to another.
  • Feydra is Sitecore front-end development done your way. It bridges the gap and eliminates friction between front-end and back-end developers, allowing front-end to work with the tools that they’re used to while eliminating the need to create individual Sitecore instances and upgrades for each developer.
  • Take this opportunity to try each platform for free and experience the difference for yourself.
  • To maximize the Hackathon experience, Hedgehog will be offering all Hackathon participants 2-week free trial licenses for TDS Classic, Razl and Feydra for use during the competition. The licenses will be valid February 25, 2017 to March 11, 2017 to give teams plenty of time to set them up, configure and enjoy them!
