What is a Hackathon?

The overall goal of the hackathon is to foster collaboration between all different companies.

The participants of the hackathon are mainly coming from the development departments or departments working together with the development departments (i.e. product and/or project management).

The idea is to form mixed teams over all employees/departments/companies to generate new ideas & products that should be presented at the end of the hackathon.
