What is a hackathon?

A hackathon brings together volunteer technologists for a marathon weekend of work, using minimal resources and maximum brainpower to create innovative technology prototypes in response to challenging problems. More than just an event, a hackathon is a unique forum for collaborative problem solving where experts define the challenges for technologists to work on, resulting in concrete prototypes that can be implemented to create real impact.
