MatterCon 2018 Hackathon Highlights

MatterCon brings the Mattermost product team, core contributors and community members together to discuss the product roadmap, hack together and meet in person. As a globally remote team, it’s nice to see each other every few months.

MatterCon 2018 brought us to Lisbon, Portugal.

It was a productive and fun event.

One of my favorite parts was the 24-hour hackathon. Check out the video below for a summary of what we built together.

I hope you enjoy some of the ideas as much as I did.
