Two months ago, we announced our Month of AI, kicking off a joint initiative with the Amplitude community and customers to bring together AI and Product. We’ve been blown away by how much interest there is. On June 3-4, over 150 developers, designers, and product people filled the halls of the Amplitude San Francisco office for our AI x Product hackathon – a weekend of creativity, code, and collaboration. (And great food!)
A snapshot of attendees and projects
AI enthusiasts from all over the world attended the hackathon to create a glimpse of what the future might look like. They were met by our amazing sponsors – AWS, New Relic, LanceDB, and Fennel.ai – who provided their products, on-site support, and fabulous prizes.

We even had the honor of hosting Alessio Fanelli and Swyx, as they recorded a live episode of Latent Space with our very own Jeffrey Wang, Chief Architect, and Joe Reeve, Engineering Manager. More on Reinforcement Learning from Human Behavior (RLHB) to come in the future!
But this was, after all, a competition, and there were prizes to be won.
