No! Every team will need people with a plethora of skill sets, such as project management, product management, marketing, design, and QA!
Yes! We just ask that if you are offering support as an SME for a product, you ensure that you are still focusing on asking other teams’ questions as they come in.
Additionally, the hackathon will need two types of leaders: subject matter experts to answer product questions and team leaders. So you may be assigned to be a team leader, meaning you’ll be in the trenches with everyone else!
A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest, datathon or codefest; a portmanteau of hacking and marathon) is an event where people engage in rapid and collaborative engineering over a relatively short period of time such as 24 or 48 hours. They are often run using agile software development practices, such as sprint-like design wherein computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, product managers, project managers, domain experts, and others collaborate intensively on engineering projects, such as software engineering.
The goal of a hackathon is to create functioning software or hardware by the end of the event. Hackathons tend to have a specific focus, which can include the programming language used, the operating system, an application, an API, or the subject and the demographic group of the programmers. In other cases, there is no restriction on the type of software being created or the design of the new system.
The event will take place Sept. 28 15:00 CEST/9 AM EST – Sept. 29 15:00 CEST/9 AM EST
Everyone who is 18 years or older! We need different disciplines and different skill sets. You don’t need any experience with programming or designing to join. The team will help you; every bit helps. There are a ton of things to do: researching, project management, creating the pitch, ideating, quality assurance testing, etc.
