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. Join Raj Polikepati, Director of Application Development, as he discusses Texas.gov’s first hackathon. In addition to producing viable solutions, the hackathon:
• enhanced core technical and soft skills,
• identified key success factors,
• modeled a lean delivery approach, and
• generated team pride.
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.
