A hackathon is defined as an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development collaborate intensively on software projects. Hackathons are also about bringing people together for a common cause or goal. At Texas.gov, we embraced the spirit of collaboration, innovation, ingenuity, and agility by recently hosting our first hackathon. In addition to producing viable solutions, our hackathon generated team pride, enhanced core technical and soft skills, identified key success factors, and modeled a lean delivery approach. This presentation will showcase exactly how Texas.gov hosted our hackathon, what the outcomes and lessons learned were, and how we benefited from the experience.
