Set the fastest time before 26 February PT and win a 14” MacBook Pro M3 Pro and $10,000 in Kinde credit

Macbook Pro M3

Plus the first 100 entries submitted will each get limited edition Kinde swag, and every competitor gets 3 months Kinde Pro subscription totally free.

How it works

  1. 1

    Record yourself integrating Kinde Auth with an existing product or language boiler plate. You can’t use a Kinde Starter Kit. Your face and a timer need to be in the video at all times for a valid entry.

  2. 2

    The clock starts ticking from your first codebase edit and ends after you can demonstrate a successful auth callback, and have confirmed in the video a new user being added in the Kinde Admin.

  3. 3

    Post your video to Twitter with the hashtag #KindeSpeedRun before 26 February. Your video must clearly show your working code, and that you have followed all rules outlined in the terms and conditions – but please obscure api keys or delete your application before posting.

    Fill out this form in order to submit your entry.

    You can enter as many times as you like.

  • What are the rules?

    In order to compete, you’ll need to record yourself integrating Kinde with an application, and log in.


    1. Create a new business or environment in Kinde
    2. Integrate Kinde Authentication into your app using one of our SDKs
    3. Sign up an account in your account using Kinde

    The following rules also apply:

    • No scripting
    • Time starts when you first start editing your code.
    • Time finishes when you successfully authenticate a user and show that user in your dashboard.
    • Your face needs to be in the video the entire time.
    • We need to be able to see the time. Suspicion of doctoring your time will result in a null entry. To avoid this, position a timer on a phone or watch in the video. This is only relevant if you’re attempting to win, you can submit without proving your time and still receive merch, and the Kinde Pro subscription.
    • Entries are only counted if you have published the video of you completing it to your own public X.com account and you have submitted to this Google form, and your entries to the form are valid.
    • Kinde reserves the right to reject an entry on suspicion of not following the rules.
  • How do I enter

    Complete your submission, upload the full video to X.com with the hashtag #KindeSpeedRun, and fill out this form.

  • What are the terms and conditions?

  • Can I enter more than once?
