What format are you interested in?
A hackathon is a team competition for developers, during which specialists from different fields (programmers, designers, analysts, product managers) work together to solve a technical task in a limited time. The hackathon takes place in the form of an offline or online event, which is preceded by a large application (advertising) campaign and selection of participants. For a customer company, a hackathon is a tool for testing product hypotheses, searching for new creative solutions, mass hiring IT specialists, or implementing marketing tasks. The participants are motivated by a cash prize, the opportunity to receive an offer from a corporation and / or create a new product and find new acquaintances. And sometimes it's "just for fun".
Two key factors when choosing a format: the budget and wishes for the geography of the hackathon
The classic hackathon lasts continuously from 30 to 48 hours and takes place on weekends. The two-day hackathon starts on Saturday morning, and the three-day hackathon starts on Friday after 18:00. The final is always held on a Sunday afternoon.
Number of tasks (tracks)
A task (track) is a task to create or improve an IT product for a business customer, which is being worked on by hackathon participants. Several teams compete within the same track. In rare cases, each team may have its own task. In the case of a hackathon with multiple tracks/challenges, each track should have its own prize pool.
Number of teams per track
The number of teams in a track depends on the size of the hackathon and the number of tasks. The more tasks, the fewer commands in one track.
