Hackaton is a great chance to show your ideas to the world and gain some sunshine and glory. Ruby Rampage Hackaton, which took place October 22-23, 2016 is one of the biggest Ruby events of its type, so no wonder it gathered best Ruby projects from all over the world. Let’s have a look at the top-5 most promising ones, who knows, maybe in a few months everybody will be talking about them.

1st Place. Teamview

Teamview is a useful tool for shared Teams, who are located in different offices or even cities. It allows them creating short videos for each other and share them to speed up the working process. The project features automatic notifications, comments and some flexible settings, to say nothin that it would be a great addition for the Team.

Solo Winner. Build a Bot

Build a Bot is small, yet charming service designed to help one build a chat bot with no extra fuss. You can use it for your website, application, HUBOT or simply have fun with your friends. It works for all purposes really well.

2nd Place. Playlist Theater

If music for you is something bigger than a soundtrack to daily routine, you will definitely enjoy Playlist Theater. It is designed not only to share playlist, but to provide them with annotated comments, which turns it all into a fascinating story. Once can also discuss the ideas described with fellow-readers, which creates a perfect room for ideas exchange.

3rd Place. BattleType

BattleType is a quirky online game, where you fight against your friends in space. But instead of regular missiles, you have to use words. It requires some strategic approach to switch between defense and attack modes and is a sheer fun. They say words can hurt, but they never could hurt like this before.

Popularity Winner. Collaborative 8 Bits Sequencer

And last, but not the least – Collaborative 8 Bits Sequencer. This is some sort of music editor, where you can collaborate with people from all over Internet to create 8 Bits tunes. Everybody can add some tones to the board, which creates a perfect melody or, what’s more probable, total cacophony.
