Getting the most from running a hackathon

A presentation at DevRelCon London in in London, UK by Kevin Lewis

Hackathons are invention marathons which bring together practitioners to solve challenges in a fixed period of time. While at the core hackathons have the same format, organisations running them often have different goals in mind that they hope to achieve by doing so.

With these goals in mind, we’ll be exploring the different variants in these events, how to identify which is most appropriate and what to do to get the most from them.
