What is a hackathon?


A hackathon is an event, where a problem must be resolved under high time pressure. Specialists from specific industries, try to work out a solution as a team

Hackathons started out as social coding competitions. Programmers and other interested people would come together and build a software program. 

Today, hackathons are organised beyond the software world and focus on solving specific cases / challenges.
