We had a Hackathon last year.
Success! But we always
want more.
More teams, more ideas,
more flexibility, more Pizza.

'Hack to the future' - Hackathons at MMT Digital

  1. 1. Hack to the Future <blink>*Applause*</blink>
  2. 2. It’s Hackathon time.
  3. 3. ‘Hackathon’? [...] an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects. Hackathons typically last between a day and a week. Some hackathons are intended simply for educational or social purposes, although in many cases the goal is to create usable software. 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..
