Hackathons in General
Atos hackathon manifesto, expectation alignment and an overall get you started guide
Hackathons are for those hungry for change, it’s for the innovators or plainly stated – the people who are not willing to settle with the traditional defaults. Such people come from all walks of life. It’s the diversity and a common goal that unites and inspires. It’s the organisational structure that provides a prepared soil for growth.
A hackathon is a useful innovation tool for exploring difficult problems or creating new and innovative solutions to existing problems. It does not have to involve technology, but usually does. This is a strictly time-boxed event, usually lasting for several days during which representatives from various disciplines come together to from diverse/sustainable teams and collaborate intensively.
