What is a hackathon?
A Hackathon is a team event that is equal parts sprint and endurance. All PD team members will work together, testing their individual skills and collaborative process — to come up with an idea and build it into a viable design project in a single day.
The word “hackathon” is a portmanteau of the words “hack” and “marathon”, where “hack” is used in the sense of exploratory programming, not its alternate meaning as a reference to breaching computer security.
Who is involved??
Everyone on our team from our most junior interns to our CEO.
