  10. 10. What we learned about running workshop/hackathon • Intensive workshops which bring many people together and challenge them to be creative can lead to new and interesting ideas • Participants need common background information • People with disabilities should be included in the design process from the beginning • Personas can be a useful tool for keeping end-users in mind • Varying forms of documentation are important for project’s records and dissemination purposes
