Back to the Future-Revisiting Stranger Hacks: GPT Era


To begin with, the excitement and curiosity surrounding this groundbreaking technology called GPT pushed us to explore the possibilities it offers. And as passionate builders, we couldn't resist the urge to host a hackathon centered around it. Thus, Stranger Hacks: GPT Era was born.

We decided to leverage GPT for everything, from creating the hackathon's microsite to generating marketing assets, hackathon posters, and emails. In a matter of moments, the hackathon was up and running, and we were pleasantly surprised by how effortless it was to set up with some help from our neighborhood-friendly LLM!

How to build cool stuff with GPT? 🤔

Well, we addressed the question in an AI workshop with our very own skilled Devfolio builders, Prateek Surana, Denver Dsouza, and Aniket Raj.
