MACHathon ‘22

Theme: Accelerate at MACH Speed


With customer expectations disrupting every market, it’s imperative that we
Accelerate at MACH Speed. This is the theme of the third MACH Alliance
MACHathon.

The MACH Alliance was established in June 2020 to help companies take advantage of the most innovative and flexible enterprise technologies available. Our MACHathon invites innovators, big thinkers and MACH enthusiasts to prove the power of MACH (Microservices based, API-first, Cloud-native SaaS and Headless) for solving real world problems fast.

Just the spark of an idea can ignite a game changing improvement or innovation. The API-driven nature of MACH means as an industry, we can deliver critical business functions as fast as we can connect to an API. Companies not offering the best Developer Experience will fail to grow. Try to scale or grow your business and technology when you fail to attract the people to do it. The MACH stack creates the best Developer Experience plus the fastest time to market.
