Here's your chance to win more than $25,000 in prizes at RedisConf 2021—here’s how to score a $1,000 gift card, iPhone 12, or drone.



Back to Blogs

From April 20-21, join us at RedisConf 2021 for more than 60 on-demand breakout sessions, four brand-new, free training courses, and a $100K “Build on Redis” hackathon. You’ll also want to tune into our live keynotes and fireside chats, where we’ll discuss the latest Redis developments, our Redis Enterprise collaborations with our partners, and insights from customers who are making real-time data a part of their solutions.

While working hard at learning, don’t forget to have some fun! We’re giving away more than $25,000 in prizes to more than 500 attendees—all you need to do is earn points by doing tasks like completing your profile, submitting surveys, and finding codes. Here’s a look at what, and how, you can win, along with tips on how to make the most of your RedisConf experience:

Peep the prizes

We’re awarding gift cards to the top 500 participantsEach person will be ranked on a real-time leaderboard based on points scored. Once the clock strikes 11:59 p.m. PT on April 21, each participant’s ranking will be cemented and point totals will be locked. Here’s what you could win:

Prize draws

The rewards don’t stop with gift cards—you are eligible to win major prizes through attendance alone. On each day of the conference we are giving away an iPhone 12 (256 GB, because we know you love your data) and a DGI Mini 2 Quadcopter for a total of four prize draws. Win the iPhone just by attending the conference, and get entered in the drone draw by attending the live keynotes. Attending each conference day and each keynote will add an entry to the draw, giving you a chance to win a prize both days.

Shoot your shot and score some points

Participation challenges

This isn’t basketball, but scoring points can make you a winner. One way to earn points is by participating in the following challenges:

  • Complete your attendee profile (including your photo)
  • Complete a training or session survey
  • Complete a keynote survey

Participating can pay big dividends—if you plan on attending the keynotes, from 9–11 a.m. PT on both days, or specific breakout sessions, take the time to fill out a survey afterwards. For just a few minutes of your time, you can boost your rankings on the leaderboard!

Scavenger hunt

The other way you can earn points is through the scavenger hunt. The goal of this challenge is to find codes, and there are two primary ways to obtain them:

There are multiple ways you can reach an expert, like in one-on-one text chats, live discussion room office hours, and the Discord community support platform. A code from a Redis expert will award you 50 points, while a code from a product flag will earn you 10. Here are the different flags you can find:

  • RediSearch flag
  • RedisJSON flag
  • RedisGears flag
  • RedisAI flag
  • RedisGraph flag
  • RedisTimeSeries flag
  • RedisBloom flag

How to make the most of RedisConf
